The rise and growth of American popular music through the 20th century is reflected in the lives of four generations of one family in this animated drama directed by Ralph Bakshi. Zalmie (voice of Jeffrey Lippa) , a Russian Jew, emigrates to America, and tries to struggle along as a comic and musician in vaudeville, until an injury suffered in World War I ends his singing career. Zalmies son Benny (voice of Richard Singer) inherits his fathers love for music, and when he grows to adulthood, he joins a jazz combo as a pianist; his career is cut short, however, when hes killed while fighting in World War II. Bennys son Tony (voice of Ron Thompson) is also bitten by the music bug and is determined to make his mark as a songwriter; he becomes involved in the Beat poetry and music community in San Francisco, and later falls in with a pioneering psychedelic band. Along the way, Tony fathers an illegitimate son named Pete (voice of Eric Taslitz) , and ends up becoming Petes guardian in New York City without realizing hes the boys father. After Tonys death, Pete supports himself by dealing drugs, while struggling to make his dream of becoming a rock star a reality.
