The unbridled portrait of three women with an irresistible universe

Eccentric all-female Icelandic electro-pop art trio Post Performance Blues Band are at a crucial stage in their career. Álfrún Örnólfsdóttir (who also directs the film) and bandmates Hrefna Lind Lárusdóttir and Saga Sigurðardóttir are all approaching forty and balancing motherhood with their rock’n’roll lifestyle. But the band has yet to find success, so how committed are they to pursuing their dream and reaching for stardom with one last push?
