Story

Twenty years ago a guitarist thought he was too good for his musical family of French goths, so he left them and left town for a better future. The group could not function without him, so they disbanded and drifted into absurd lives. After twenty years of failing in numerous bands, the guitarist finally realizes his family band was the best thing he had. He returns to his hometown to reform the band, but not all his siblings are happy to see him again, especially the one who thought he was dead. The guitarist must persevere through family challenges, aggressive mimes, cranky artists, a menacing chorus, and more to find his family and put it back together again.
