In this feelgood comedy we follow the rock band Los Bando Immortale on an adventurous journey through the country. With the pedal to the metal and rally driver Martin (Jonas Oftebro) behind the wheel, the band has to break laws and rules, defy parents and childhood heroes to reach the Norwegian championships of Rock. The driving force is great, the obstacles maybe even greater - will they reach the championships on time?
