|Hipsters: While the Cold War heats up on the world stage, rebellious youth in nineteen fifty-five Moscow wage a cultural battle against dismal Soviet conformity, donning

shocking until he falls under the spell of one, namely Polly, and joins the new revolution. Soon he's a peacock, cavorting in the latest flashy fashions, sporting an enormous
pompadour and wailing on the saxophone.
