    • Synopsis
    • In the mid 70’s, in the middle of the military dictatorship in Peru; Tavo, Cesar and Lucho, childhood friends from the Breña neighborhood in Lima, get together to achieve their dreamed project, forma a rock band. They wanted to do it right and after some rehearsals they realized that they wanted to gain more knowledge in music in order to have more elements to compose. They decided to go to the National School of Music and in this way Fragile was born; that sublime feeling that elevates you while their music lasts and lands you when they finish.
      In the beginning of the 80’s they record their first album titled, Larco Avenue, name of the song that photographs the parties that went on in this renowned avenue in the district of Miraflores and, after 38 years, it still is the most know and performed hit in Peruvian rock.
      During all these years, Fragile recorded eight discs and one single, they had three drummers and four lead singers who, at their respective time, gave life to each of their songs with their voices and music.
      In August of 2014, Ayni Productions had the idea to reunite all of the members that passed through this band and carried out “The Concert of the History” at the Great National Theatre. That night, the public vibrated with every single hit from the band who, besides from having all of their singers and musicians on stage, were accompanied by a Symphonic Orchestra conducted by Gabriel Alegria and the legendary jazz saxophonist, Lenny Picket.
      The story, the concert, the adventures, incidents, anecdotes, encounters, disagreements, excesses and all the well kept secrets for more than 39 years of existence will be revealed in this important film; all told by their respective protagonist in 120 minutes.
