This is the improbable but true story of the rise and fall of Polish émigré Jan Lewan (Black), from striving tchotchke shop owner in the '70s to the undisputed "King of Pennsylvania Polka" in the early '90s. Lewan pursued the American Dream by any means necessary, fleecing investors and bribing officials to build a personal musical empire in what became the world's only known polka Ponzi scheme. Swept up by Lewan's charismatic charm are his devoted wife, Marla (Jenny Slate), and his neurotic sidekick, Mickey (Jason Schwartzman).Hide
