    • Synopsis
    • Michele, Iacopo and Edoardo are the young members of a punk band from Grosseto, a quiet and small town in the South of Tuscany, Italy.
      Living in Italy in 2007, with an economic crisis looming by, they are seen by everyone as out of place and out of time, but they don't care: punk music means everything to them and it's the only thing keeping them sane in that boring city.
      Tired to keep performing in cheap contexts like local parties or countryside festivals, they finally have the opportunity to play in Milan together with an important band, The Defence. That morning, while loading the car with their instruments, they receive terrible news: the concert is not going to take place anymore.
      Michele does not want to give up: the 30 y.o. skinhead drummer is set on calling the German band singer, Freddy, and ask him if they would like to perform in their small city. Surprisingly, the band sounds enthusiast to join them in beautiful Tuscany.
      Everything seems to proceed on the right track, but soon the three friends find themselves stuck in a stormy situation. Each of them has to face with serious personal problems and, even worse, with their fellow citizens’ adverse attitude to the concert. At the same time, they have to manage getting everything ready for the great night.
      This event, with all its troubles, is going to test all their certainties, leading them to a crisis point where nothing, not even their friendship, seems to be safe anymore.
