Follow the story of contemporary rock and roll bands as they rise and fall thanks to the paradox of talent and recognition.

When living on the top makes you hit rock bottom, what else is there to rely on? Is the world’s respect more relevant than self-realization? What happens when those concepts become equivalent? These are only a few of the questions the characters wonder as they dive into an endless self-destruction and reconstruction circle, accompanied, or even fueled, by excesses and inspiring situations often linked to the shared fascination for the wonderful miracle of music.

Long story short: sex, drugs, rock ‘n’ roll.
