The true life story of iconic radio personality Ralph Waldo "Petey" Greene Jr. in Washington D.C. during the 1960's as vibrant soul music and social consciousness was exploding.

Academy Award® nominee Don Cheadle portrays "Petey" Greene Jr. in this funny, feel-good and inspiring true story. Ex-convict Greene talks his way into an on-air radio gig with program director Dewey Hughes (Chiwetel Ejiofor), and his unprecedented "tell it like it is" style breaks all the rules while electrifying a city and bringing a nation together when it needs it the most.

Also starring Cedric The Entertainer, Taraji P. Henson, Mike Epps and Martin Sheen.

Rated R for pervasive language and some sexual content.
