PREMIER (HUNGARY): 2009.

At a time when everybody else would like to escape to the West an adolescent boy returns home from America to spread rock'n'roll...
In the spring of 1963 Miki and his parents leave behind the American dream and after four years away return to Budapest. Back in Hungary revolutionaries and counter-revolutionaries alike regard Miki's jobless father with suspicion, while Miki - who is a great guitarist and singer with dreams of becoming the next Jerry Lee Lewis - is not accepted by his former friends whose new leader, Röné is referred to as the "Kingfisher". His first love, Vera, now has a new boyfriend.
Miki is left with but one choice: to apply to a talent show and prove to everybody that he has a place in this old-new world. He is a great success and with his American music he casts a spell on his young audience. As the final is approaching it becomes clearer and clearer to Miki that with his victory he can gain his friends' appreciation, win back his love and even save his father's life.
