Three Icelandic bandmates, Álfrún, Saga and Hrefna, from The Post Performance Blues Band, are tired of playing for an audience of five on their gigs and get paid in beer. Each of them is staring down 40 and struggle to juggle being mothers and their artistic pursuits. They decide to give themselves one more year to either become pop stars or leave the band for good. What follows is a make-it-or-break-it story about a band that is not really a band. A music group with performance art. This is a movie about sisterhood set to beautiful Iceland.
