The film is supported by Polish Embassy in Thailand and was scheduled for Saturday, May 18 at 4pm. A new date for the screening will be announced when TK Park reopens to the public on July 1.
The film depicts five devoted friends who shared a great dream when they were kids – to rock the Polish metal music scene and draw big crowds to their concerts as the band Exterminator. The band broke up and now its leader, Marcys, works in his father’s store and his relationship with Magda is in crisis.
Guitar virtuoso Lizzy is a bank employee, bassist Jaromir punches a time card at a polyurethane foam factory and struggles to live up to his responsibilities of head of a family, and drummer Makar is in a mental institution. The fifth member, Cypek, emigrated for financial reasons. However, one day, old memories return. The mayor turns out to have been a great fan of Exterminator and promises to finance their reunion. But there is a catch: The guys have to betray their ideals and perform at a number of fairs, playing songs quite distant from their usual repertoire. Their male pride won’t let them compromise, and their long-standing friendship as well as their relationships with women will be put to a true test.
The film created a wave at festivals abroad and was a big hit at home.
