In this satire on government and pop culture, a futuristic British regime uses a timid rock star, Steven Shorter (Paul Jones), to control the masses. Stephen performs songs like the rock version of "Onward Christian Soldiers," and everyone loves his image of a religious boy who is ready to obey. All goes well–until Steven meets gorgeous painter Vanessa Ritchie (Jean Shrimpton) who influences him to acknowledge that his life is a sham. When he looks at what is really happening, he revolts.
