Leningrad in a summer of the early 80s. A youth passionately devours the smuggled albums by Lou Reed and David Bowie; the underground scene is steaming like a kind of forerunner of Perestroika. The young Mike Naumenko and his beautiful wife Nataša meet the 19-year-old Viktor Tsoï. Together they will change the destiny of rock’n’roll in the Soviet Union. This film was inspired by the life of two key representatives of Russian rock music.
