Every Tuesday 25 tattooed middle aged men take a break from their everyday lives to meet and drink beer, tell bad jokes and sing dirty rock songs. In their female-free zone, behind closed doors they spend time with their buddies and let their steam out. The brotherhood means a lot to them. They have even promised to sing in each others funerals - a joke of course, it has never occurred to them that it's going to happen. But one day, when one of them confides he's got little time left to live, they realize that life is fragile and that none of them are immortal. This summer they have landed their biggest and most absurd gig ever - warming up for the legendary hard rock band Black Sabbath.

“SOUNDS LIKE A LOT OF FUN, AND IT IS, BUT WHEN WE FIND OUT SOME VERY SAD NEWS, THE FILM TAKES A TURN FROM FRIVOLITY TO AN EXPLORATION OF LOSS, COMMUNITY, AND PERSEVERANCE.”

- Jane Firehouse, Letterboxd Media
