“If I was English I wouldn’t care if Communism in Czechoslovakia reformed itself into a pile of pig shit. To be English would be my luck.”
A visiting postgraduate student at Cambridge named Jan breaks with his former instructor, Marxist philosopher Max, and returns to Prague with a suitcase filled with "socially negative music." The next 21 years of Max's family's life are chronicled through the music of rock 'n' roll, while Jan is mired in a Communist police state's dissidence spiral. But beneath the music, Rock ‘n’ Roll is a story of passion and love.
