Somewhere in the tundra, in no man's land, there is the worst rock 'n' roll band in the world, perfectly styled, but without an audience and without the slightest chance of commercial success: the Leningrad Cowboys. They decide to bury their national pride and head for the United States, where people will "eat any crap". This movie tells the story of their journey across the ocean and across the continent, a story of disreputable pubs and decent people in the backyard of the Hamburg nation.
