Grossetto, 2008. Edoardo, Iacopo and Michele are three young members of a punk rock group. Bored with playing between local festivals and national holidays, they finally get the chance to redeem themselves by opening for the famous American hardcore punk band, the Defense, at their upcoming concert booked for Bologna. However, when the concert is canceled, the three refuse to give up. If they can’t go to Bologna to play for the Defense, then they will bring the group to Grosseto. But the plan proves to be more difficult than expected as the quirks of small-town life turn every detail into an insurmountable problem, jeopardizing the success of their endeavor and, more importantly, their cherished friendship.
