Axel, Tino and Jan have been living their dream of sex, drugs & rock’n’roll for the past 15 years as roadies for numerous bands at festivals. Rooted in the Karl-Marx-Stadt punk scene, they were happy to live from day to day, with no “real” jobs after the fall of the Wall. Being a roadie was the perfect job: it provided money and the feeling of freedom, and fitted the image of a punk rocker!
But now, aged mid and late 30s, things have changed. After 15 years of touring and physical hard work, they are showing the first signs of wear and tear: they need more time to rest and start feeling their age in an industry where mentally they want to still hold on to their familiar and youthful lifestyle. Three coming-of-age stories in which the protagonists are no longer teenagers but still have to reshape their future anew.
