From the Daily Dot

The Polka King, by writing-directing team Maya Forbes and Wallace Wolodarsky, is a disjointed dark comedy about an odd true crime. Jan Lewandowski (Jack Black), who goes by the "rhyming Jan Lewan," was indicted in 2004 for running a Ponzi scheme. He bilked his victims out of $4 million. Jan spun the ill-gotten cash into a music empire. Jenny Slate as Jan's wife Marla and Jacki Weaver as Marla's mother are both silver linings, but The Polka King needs to face the music.
