Storyline

ADVENTURES OF POWER is an epic comedy about a mine-worker named Power whose love of drums and lack of musical skill has turned him into the ridiculed "air drummer" of his small town. But when Power's union-leader father calls a strike at the mine, Power discovers an underground subculture of air-drummers who just might hold the key to changing the world. Power's journey across America brings him face-to-face with his town's greatest enemy, and allows him to discover the beat within his own heart. Written by Ari Gold

Pure genius!
28 November 2017 | by julie_wilkingSee all my reviews

The kind of movie that doesn't come along every decade. I bumbled into it on Hoopla. Brilliantly funny and lovably endearing for those with a particular sense of humor. You'll love the characters even more each time you watch it. Chances are your friends won't appreciate it. Don't let this gem pass you by.
