A born again, orthodox Jewish Elvis impersonator, a capricious Rabbi, and an ambitious film crew pile into a Winnebego to find out if there is any truth to the claims that the most recognizable pop culture figure in the history of rock and roll may in fact have Jewish roots. Inspired by the 1998 Wall Street Journal article that traced The King's Jewish lineage, this wild ride into the heart of rock and roll is a trip that no music lover is likely to soon forget.
