Over twenty years later, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, against all odds, have become one of the most successful bands in the world. Though the band has gone through many incarnations, Anthony Kiedis, the group's lyricist and dynamic lead singer, has been there for the whole roller-­coaster ride.

It follows the lives of several protagonists through these events. The most notable areCharles Darnay and Sydney Carton.
