The Blue Jet

Synopsis

Baptized in blue denim, Blue Jet is a rebellious radio DJ who broadcasts forbidden rock n' roll in 1970’s Taiwan.

The country has been under martial law for the past two decades, and the KMT Secret Youth Police seek out the long-haired instigators of “hippie” culture. Hear the untold story of a legend, remembered by an old fan who recalls his first time walking on the wild side.
