The story of nothing less than the creation of rock 'n' roll. Set in Memphis, Tennessee, it's the story of Sam Phillips, a struggling audio engineer who has a dream of starting his own record label. His first goal was to record blues singers, and he discovered B.B. King, Howlin' Wolf, and others. Seeing that white kids secretly enjoyed this music on the radio but wouldn't buy it, he began to think that a white teen who had a feel for blues could change everything. Enter Elvis Presley. Ultimately, on On December 4, 1956, Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins joined at the Sun Record Studios for an impromptu recording session. Based on the stage musical.
