In 1957, The Soviet Union dropped the atomic bomb on the U.S. and won the war. The only place left where freedom is not outlawed is Las Vegas where Elvis rules as King. 40 years later Elvis has died and the message gets sent out over the radiowaves to one and all that Vegas needs a new King. Cue Buddy, the sword-swinging, guitar-playing hero who looks suspiciously a lot like Buddy Holly. Along his trek across the Badlands he befriends an orphan boy who accompanies him on his journey as he battles his way through Windmill People, a Spinach Monster, and Death (who looks a lot like Slash from Guns N Roses) just to name a few.
