The Polka King

This is the remarkable true story of Jan Lewan, a Polish immigrant who became the “King of Pennsylvania Polka.” A believer in the American Dream, Jan worked hard and dreamed bigger. But with big dreams came big mistakes. Comedy and tragedy mix in the world’s only known Polka Ponzi scheme.
