Isaki Lacuesta, the two-time San Sebastian Festival winners portrays in this film how complex and stormy it can be to create a timeless work, as was the case with LOS PLANETAS and their third album. A film as disruptive as the album that inspires it, with beautiful almost dreamlike photography, mold-breaking editing, and the magnificent performances of some new actors that will give us something to talk about. All at the service of a story full of passion and with an unrepeatable soundtrack that has behind it the screenwriter of VERONICA and BELOW ZERO.
A rock band has to record their third LP, the one that will make them either rise to stardom or fall into oblivion. Their idea, despite the reluctance of the executives, is for the recording to take place in NY. But everything gets complicated, and the creative process becomes hell. Desertions of band members, sentimental breakups, rehearsals where drugs and alcohol run rampant, and the unbearable pressure of the record company are generating endless fights and arguments only alternated by small moments of happiness. Meanwhile, without knowing it, they will be composing an album that will mark a whole generation.
