Teen-agers Darek Dabrowski and Eleanor Hanson come from two different worlds. In communist Poland, all Darek cares about is Levi Strauss jeans, Adidas sneakers and a one way ticket to America. Oh and the release of his father, a local solidarity leader, from jail. Eleanor, meanwhile, lives in the Bible belt of New Brunswick where all that really matters is doing God's will and the state of one's soul. Oh and hard, physical labour. Live from the Underground is the haunting, hilarious, and ultimately hopeful account of two worlds that collide. It's a story of light and dark, faith and doubt, courage and fear. It's a warning against stagnation and a call to throw off everything that hinders and keep on no matter what life might hold.
