Denmark 1962: As protests against the nuclear arms race and imperialist policies grow louder, activist Eik meets the beautiful Iben.
Eik, who tries his hand as a poet and writer, is immediately fascinated by his new acquaintance. But she is not only enthusiastic about literature, music and drugs, but also about the idea of free love. On a joint odyssey that leads from Copenhagen to Baghdad, Eik leaves no stone unturned in his quest to win Iben for himself. In one last big attempt, he finally founds Steppeulvene, Denmark's first rock band.
Portrait of a generation that gets entangled in disappointments and contradictions when trying to realize its hopes - and of a band that has long enjoyed legendary status in Denmark.
