Synopsis

More than doing a conventional rockumentary, Temple examines the social and cultural condition of the seventies through music. The film shares its characteristic cinematic language: an irreverent and anarchic style of archival montage and fiction recordings. The role of Joe Strummer is well known, but Dr. Feelgood played a vital role and his story had not yet been told.
