An intimate, career-spanning portrait of Ukrainian immigrant and punk legend Eugene Hütz, chronicling his childhood journey to the U.S., his rise to fame with the band Gogol Bordello, and his defiant return to Ukraine after the Russian invasion.

Gogol Bordello is a wild, visionary cadre of immigrant musicians, artists, and outsiders, whose border-blasting message of inclusion and personal liberation, coupled with their musical supercollider style, have made them one of the world’s most vital and explosive live acts. Through never-before-seen photo and video archives spanning two decades – including concert performances, behind-the-scenes footage, and intimate interviews – the wild punk-rock-doc follows the epic journey of Gogol Bordello's frontman Eugene Hütz, as he uses music as a rallying cry for the cultural identity of Ukraine in a time of war.

"A compelling behind the scenes glimpse into the high octane cross-cultural cabaret roadshow that is of Gogol Bordello."
