In this offbeat road comedy from Finland, Turo is a misfit stuck in a small village where the best thing in his life is being the lead vocalist for an underground heavy metal band. The problem? The band is literally stuck underground, having practiced for over a decade in their parents' basement without mustering the confidence to venture out for a public gig. When Turo and his bandmates Jynkky, Lotvonen and Pasi receive a surprise visit from the promoter of a huge heavy metal music festival in Norway, they decide it’s now or never. After an awkward warm-up gig, the band — which chooses the name Impaled Rektum — must find new motivation to chase their dreams. With a new original song under their belt, and inspiration from the pretty girl next door at the local flower shop, the band hits the road and goes full metal, stealing a death van, transporting a corpse, kidnapping a new drummer from the mental hospital, and fleeing to Norway, with the authorities in hot pursuit, to play their first real gig.
