Synopsis

The band “The Electrifiers” won the 1984 Best New Artist Award for their smash hit which no one remembers and has been stuck in traffic on the fast track to international stardom ever since. 30 years later, the band members, continue to drag themselves between gigs at nursing houses and cheap B&B’S. The lead singer, Mickey Tevel, a once charismatic showman, is still leading the life of a 20-year-old rocker: dreaming of making it big while living hand to mouth out of the band’s van, conveniently parked in his ex-wife’s garage. Mickey won’t stop messing up and letting all his band members down, as well as his teenage daughter, but just as everyone is about to become completely fed up with him, a surprising, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity presents itself, which could deliver the band’s long awaited comeback, and propel them straight to the top.
