The viewer experiences their story as it intertwines with a live performance filmed at the Highline Ballroom in New York City in March 2011. The band, with the same original 6 members, celebrates 20 years in 2011. The film has 600 backers from countries as diverse as Venezuela, Australia, Spain, Ecuador, Chile, Peru, France, Switzerland and the USA.
