"Imagine Life in the Rhythm of Dance Music" - this slogan coined the music scene of Yugoslavia unleashed in the 1980s. While an era is buried after the death of President Tito, hard-boiled rock bands with provocative names like "Električni Orgazam" are not only breaking musical norms. Two decades later, this music documentary looks back on that turbulent time - in search of the punk heroes of that time who rehearsed the overthrow of socialism. At the beginning of the 1980s Yugoslavia's youth danced to the music of local bands such as Azra, Pankrti, Film, Haustor, Idoli, Bjelo dugme and Električni orgazam. While the country around them is stagnating economically, the charismatic President Tito is dying and the first signs of political crisis are emerging, the young generation is creating its very own variant of rock. Almost two decades later, the director embarks on a search for the heroes of his youth and a bygone era, exploring the connection between punk rock and the fall of socialism.
