When a kid draws a dirty picture on his homework he gets into trouble with the Human Rights Commission. The commissioners for race, gender, religion etc accuse him of the most heinous hate crimes.

One man will play 8 characters, sing 11 new songs (rap, disco, punk, death metal and more) and destroy all your cherished moral sensibilities, all while playing the viola!
