Since 2002 the international community has injected more than a trillion dollars into Afghanistan. This film examines the counter insurgency/ culture campaign that the US government [and others] funded. Told through the eyes of Afghan youth, who start the country’s first ever heavy metal band and an adventurous Australian, who created a Western style music scene in the capital, Kabul. Will head banging, disenchanted young Afghans win over hearts and minds with their infectious energy or will the Taliban emerge from the shadows to quell their musical uprising?
