    • Synopsis
    • In a world seething from the vibrations of the bikes from Easy Rider, from the poems of William Burroughs and Allen Ginsberg, from the counterculture revolution, from the battle to think, act and be free, a little boy from Bahia, impassioned with Elvis Presley, birthed rock & roll in Brazil! An out of control flying saucer that abducted hearts and minds of millions of fans! Raul Seixas, a man who became a myth.
      The film unveils, through rare images from the archives, family encounters and discussions with artists, producers and friends, the life and path of this rock legend.
      Raul Seixas died young because he lived intensely. He lived Rock & Roll, Free Love, the Alternative Society, Drugs, Black Magic, Military Dictatorship, Wives, Daughters. The beginning, the end, and the in-between are muddled because the story is still on-going.
      The myth is eternal and the myth of rock is... RAUL SEIXAS !
