Jarocin used to be a unique place on the map of Eastern Europe in the Communist Block, because it became a symbol of individuality, freedom and protest in the enslaving system. It was all possible, thanks to rock music. The movie about Jarocin is a story of freedom. Not only freedom of a single entity from the totalitarianism but also artistic freedom to create and express oneself. It shows what freedom was like between 1970 and 1990 at the same time contrasting it with the meaning of freedom for a modern day person. Based on the story of the Festival the movie also depicts the hardship of life under communist regime as well as a music road of Poles to freedom.
