A man in his mid-thirties ponders leaving his adult responsibilities behind in favor of following his teenage dreams in this comedy-drama from France. Max (Mathieu Demy) is a successful surgeon working at one of the best hospitals in Paris. However, when he was nineteen, Max played guitar in a rock 'n' roll band, and for all his accomplishments he's never been able to beat the excitement of cranking up his amp in front of an audience. When Max is offered a promotion at the hospital to chief of thoracic surgery, he decides it's not what he wants and quits in order to put his old band back together. Max wants to keep his new career a secret from his wife Anna (Romane Bohringer), at least for a while, so his best friend Praline (Julie Depardieu) and his closest colleague Jojo (Mathias Mlekuz) are sworn to secrecy as Max starts rehearsing in Praline's basement. While Max is able to convince his old band mates Apache (Warren Zavatta) and Felipe (Fabio Zenoni) to get on board, the group needs a new lead singer, and they recruit Chine (Eleonore Pourriat), a gal with a big voice and attitude to match. Max and company have been breaking in a set of new material when Anna learns her husband has quit medicine to play rock and roll, and while she decides to support his new ambitions, that's not to say she thinks this is a good idea.
