It’s summer 1981 in Leningrad (now St. Petersburg) and the underground music scene is boiling. Rock devotees await the latest imported albums and bootleg recordings from the west, eagerly consuming forbidden music by Led Zeppelin, Bowie, the Beatles, and the Velvet Underground, alongside new wave masters like the Sex Pistols, the Clash and Blondie. 

Amidst all this covert cultural fervour, Mike (Roman Bilyk), a singer with a wildly popular band, lives with his girlfriend Natasha (Irina Starshenbaum), and their baby in a cramped shared apartment. But their relationship is complicated by the arrival of Viktor (Tee Yoo), who has a band of his own and is eager to become the stuff of legends.
