A familiar story made new by the empathetic main character and an authentic rock ’n’ roll universe.


Zack Fluett was living the rock star dream. Then one fateful night at the Grammys he broke his hand on his lead singer's nose and lost everything.

A decade later he's back--sober, wiser, and nominated for Song of the Year. But ghosts from his past send him careening out of control as the clock ticks down on the announcement of his category. Zack must rely on the only constant in his life, playing music, to make it through the madness of Music's Biggest Night.

The music industry gets skewered in this hilarious take on one man’s battle to dance to his own tune.
