Private Project

Riffs of Revolution

In the near future, Dr. Zemp and his ZZ-troupers terrorize cafe owners and street musicians who haven't paid the "music tax." A group of people who resist Dr. Zemp gather around a band called Razor Jet and their ingenious guitar player Ray Coduymix, whose music gives people superhuman strength. Dr. Zemp's sister, Niniva, who owns a record label, decides to turn Razor Jet into a "boy band" to destroy their rock'n'roll power.
