When hard times hit a small copper town, mineworker Power (writer-director Gold) only wishes one thing - that he'd learned to play drums. But his father (McKean) could never afford to buy him a drum set, so Power has embraced the next best thing - air drumming. Tired of the constant ridicule from his father and the other mine workers and with nothing but a few dollars, some cereal, and the support of his Aunt Joanie (Lynch), Power sets off across the country to the "paradise" of Newark, where an underground air drumming crew has invited him to join their team. But as the big air drumming competition looms, so does a rival -- multi-millionaire drummer Dallas H. (Grenier), who thinks air drumming is an abomination and seeks to destroy Power and his crew. More than just a rock'n'roll comedy, "Adventures of Power" is an epic fable about trusting your own heartbeat as a means of changing the world.
