Tragicomic music film about two bands and six musicians. They share a massive lack of talent, do not enjoy any appreciation from the public, but are very ambitious. They summon the devil for help and have to make a metaphysical trip to meet their maker. The competition has catastrophic consequences. The city gets flooded. Explosive animated film plays with stereotypes and icons from pop history.
