Synopsis

NZ's most successful rock band took their dreams all the way to the giddy heights of the US music scene. A terrorist attack, ill-advised name-change and swift-talk managers saw those dreams fall apart at the seams in one fated moment in LA's notorious 'Viper Room'.

After multiple best-selling albums and a bond that has endured for over 23 years this documentary examines the notions of family, loyalty and success for four friends that almost took the biggest music industry in the World by storm.
