It's 1965 and for 23 year-old Richard Davis, life is all about music and his beautiful wife Judy. Richard spends his days writing music reviews for the newspaper and his nights managing a band called 'The Yellow Sprockets'. His big dream is to bring rock n’ roll to the New Zealand public and break the government’s monopoly on state controlled broadcasting. Freedom of choice and freedom of speech push Richard to come up with a radical and cunning plan to anchor a boat off from Auckland in a triangle of international water. Based on an incredible true story, this David and Goliath epic struggle escalates into a titanic war between the government and a young generation.
