This intriguing episode is transformed into a plea for beauty, creativity and joy. The film functions as a metaphor for contemporary Spain and its ongoing state of crisis. ?Bernardo74

Three musicians, all in their fifties, are back on tour. They have fans in every age group and play in huge sold-out arenas around the world. They travel in black Mercedes limousines - each in its own - stay separately in luxury hotels and have separate dressing rooms in the backstage area every night. Only on stage they are together. We watch Morton Harket, Magne Furuholmen and Paul Waaktaar very closely with our camera. Our mission is to find out why these three, friends since childhood, have become so cold with each other. Something is totally rotten between them, but what? The two blondes in the band - Magne and Paul - formed their first band together at the age of 10. And like many teens they dreamed of becoming world-famous rock musicians. In Norway in the 70s that was an impossible and childish dream. The country was primarily known for "Zero Points" in the Eurovision Song Contest and had never produced a band that was famous beyond its borders. But of all people these guys succeeded. Their dream came true. But was it really? All three answer this question with a slight doubt. They actually dreamed of becoming serious rock stars, not teenage idols who were pictured in glossy magazines.
