Follows a pair of young musicians, recently released from prison, on a mission to take their rock band to Europe. Forbidden by the authorities to play in Iran, they plan their escape abroad with a fast-talking music promoter. Vowing to play one last show before leaving Tehran, their dangerous mission takes them on a free-wheeling journey through the city's vibrant and diverse underground scene, home to an estimated 2,000 illegal independent bands.

The Iranian music industry has gone mainstream! And not without great oppression. Must see for any musical enthusiast!

Soundtrack is so good, many songs in English.

I would have to agree with sykch's comment that just as the movie seemed to be coming to some sort of conclusion, it just completely deflates and ends rather abruptly. I enjoyed the feature despite this and it was interesting to see how much of an underground music scene exists. Also interesting was the "filming" of extra, most of it was pretty standard of comments interspersed with behind the scenes stuff, but you do get a glimpse of how restricted it is when the camera crew are approached and told they will be reported by one of the onlookers.

Gives insight into an underground movement. Shows why governments have so much difficulty in controlling the avant garde youth who have influence, money, and the smarts, The reeling in, by authorities, of such groups is done with overwhelming force when they are caught. Of course since even trivial activities are illegal people sometimes get involved in much more risky adventures than they normally would.
