  • 4.0
Recently dumped by his girlfriend, underachiever Alex (Ryan O’Nan) embarks on an impromptu road trip with his new bandmate, the eccentric Jim (Michael Weston). By channeling their inner children and giving a new meaning to the term “lo-fi,” Alex and Jim find their unique style by bringing the sound of children’s instruments to their unsuspecting fans. Playing a series of bizarre shows and experiencing multiple near-disasters, Alex and Jim’s persistence takes them on a true coming-of-age journey, one that may be their last shot at achieving their childhood dreams.

"A pair of misfit hipsters hit the road in. . .a likably goofy, lo-fi indie propelled by the syncopations of a cheesy keyboard - and the cheesy dreams of its hapless heroes." - Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer

I absolutely adore the music! My heart just soared to every original song, blending into one of the most wonderful movies about musicians ive seen in the last few years. I loved the passion Ryan O'Nan put into sharing this music to me in such a unique way.

A pretty milquetoast affair that seems like it could have been a Josh Radnor vanity project in another universe.

Ryan O'Nan's movie shouldn't work, but it does. He and Michael Weston play great off each other. And just when you're afraid it's all about to push into "twee" territory -- It pulls itself just enough off key that it is impossible not to enjoy.

Perfection.

brillant and beautiful˜! The artists were true and well played. bravo!
