Director/screenwriter Juha Koiranen helms this music-filled comedy drama concerning an idealistic student's quest to become a guitar legend without compromising his ideals. Tiger is student who should have entered the real world by now, but whose growth has been stunted by the unending generosity of his well-meaning parents. A wannabe rock god who is far too honest for his own good, Tiger enrolls in a creative writing course in order to improve his songwriting skills. Tiger's musical idols are Jack Nevada and Pumppu -- a pair of geriatric musicians who haven't played together in over 20 years -- and when the factory in Tiger's small town is threatened with closure, the ambitious guitarist is shocked to learn that Jack is actually the owner. When Jack invites Tiger to Helsinki in order to perform, it is revealed that the concert has more to do with pushing a new drug called Eternal Youth rather than rocking their fans to the very core. Now, as the opposing worlds of commerce and rock & roll come crashing together, Tiger begins to discover just how critical compromise can truly be for those who long to live their dreams. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
