    • Synopsis
    • Every Tuesday twenty-five tattooed middle-aged men take a break from their everyday lives, leave their wives and kids behind to meet and drink beer, tell bad jokes and sing dirty rock songs. In their female free zone, behind closed doors they spend time with their buddies and let their steam out.

      The brotherhood means everything to them. They have even promised to sing in each other’s funerals – a joke of course, it has never occurred to them that it’s ever going to happen. But one day, when one of them confides he’s got little time left to live, they realize that life is fragile and that none of them are immortal.

      They have landed their biggest and most absurd gig ever – warming up for a Black Sabbath Concert. They just hope they will all live long enough to experience it together. This summer becomes a race against time and death.
