This satiric documentary about the disco scene proposes that the era long-dismissed as a time of hedonistic excess has been gravely misunderstood. Revisionist historians argue that it was an important time of protest that liberating gays, blacks and women. The arguments of these revisionists are juxtaposed against interviews with disco's biggest stars, The Village People, Gloria Gaynor, Kool and the Gang, and "reenactments" that present a fresh look at the era.
