An enthusiastic Siberian rock 'n' roll band, The Leningrad Cowboys, journeys to New York with their manager (Matti Pellonpää) and a dead member who froze to death before his dreams of success could be realized. They land a gig in Mexico, and the band, including the dead member strapped to the top of their Cadillac, drives there through the country that birthed rock music, meeting various characters along the road to success. Meanwhile, a crazed fan (Kari Väänänen) from home chases them down.
