The story of four kids from Dillingen on the Danube river who meet in high school and form a rock band: The Killerpilze (Killer Shrooms). They soon rocket to fame, a whirlwind of fame and parties, but also fights and hangovers. One of the left the band, the others left the major label which had catapulted them to stardom overnight, maybe too quickly. They attempt to reinvent themselves with their own record label. The story of the Killerpilze, told by themselves and their contemporaries, the story of a whole industry. And all the clichés are true. Rock on!
