This is Emmy nominated film producer Leslie Woodhead's effort to bring Beatle fans the true story behind the Beatles influence in the USSR that lead to the eventual downfall of Communism. The film begins where Woodhead first met up with the Beatles in 1962. As a young researcher, he worked on a brief black and white film shot in the Cavern Club in Liverpool before the world had heard of the Beatles. 25 years later, he has been back in Russia to talk to some of the Beatles generation, and to hear their stories about how the Fab Four changed their lives - and how they made the revolution which transformed their country into "Beatlestan."
