The story of the film begins in 1984, the very beginning of perestroika in USSR, when a group of architects decided to organize a one-night music band as a New Year’s party joke in Kaunas, Lithuania. The joke proved to be so good that rumors about the new exciting rock band ANTIS spread by word of mouth. Imposing make-up and props, stylized show, and lyrics created a pervasive caricature of Soviet propaganda, perfectly discrediting the absurd of the Soviet reality. Soon their intellectual clowning grew into the Rock Marches – massive events involving thousands of people – that transformed into the big meetings for Lithuanian Independence which were later named the Singing Revolution.
