*Director will attend Q&A after 23/9 screening
Married couple Anna and Ben fight constantly. It doesn't help that they've each come to a standstill in their careers, or that, together, they've suffered a heartbreak neither wants to face. But one day they come up with a brilliant idea they actually agree on: Why not start a band and use their arguments as songwriting inspiration? Almost as soon as they dig out their old electric guitars from the garage, their musical partnership starts to jell, but it soon becomes apparent this is only a temporary distraction from their real problems.
