Additional Information

Quiet Mario and the go-getting Francisco are best friends and love heavy metal. When the “Iron Maiden” band comes to Colombia for the first time, a dream comes true for the boys. Mario even steals money from his mother to attend the band’s live performance with Francisco. When the day of the concert has come, the two of them skip school and take a day off. They roam the streets of Bogota and visit Cala, the owner of their favourite record shop, who has untiringly been waiting for this concert for 30 years. Finally, they move on and have two unpleasant encounters that result in a black eye for both of them. But what is much worse: their concert tickets are stolen! It is all over, and a bitter dispute breaks out between the boys, which puts their friendship to the test. In the evening, when they help Cala to see Iron Maiden at last, they realise what really matters: togetherness and music, no matter how bad life is.
