Description: The Rock and Roll years visit Iceland in this raucous saga that tells of the outcast people living in barracks left behind by American forces after World War II. Specifically, it's about Baddi and Danni, two children brought up by their grandparents. When their flirty mother marries an American pilot and moves to Kansas Baddi visits her and returns to Devils Island as an Elvis look alike with a new American accent and a big car. He becomes a local hero, but his stardom soon fades, his mother divorces and this quirky family sets out on another adventure.
