Set amid many of the defining societal and cultural events of the past four decades, THE DEFIANT ONES tells the stories of two men from different tough neighborhoods and their improbable partnership and surprising leading roles in a series of transformative events in contemporary culture. This revealing, compelling and often-gritty story takes place in recording studios, in humble homes, in criminal courts and in the highest corridors of corporate power. Defiance is defined as "daring or bold resistance to authority or to any opposing force." This unique and inspiring tale shows how decades of DEFIANCE and determination helped Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre build a few empires, make a series of American Dreams come true and transform two street kids into global forces to be reckoned with, here and now. The result is a master class in how to work your way up from the bottom to beyond your wildest dreams.
