synopsis
The two best friends, Grim and Axel, have ever since they were eight been dreaming about attending the annual Norwegian Championships of Rock. Together they have a band ­ Los Bando Immortale, but they lack a bass player, and Axel the vocalist and lead guitarist can’t sing. Grim hasn’t had the heart to tell him yet, but when they get accepted to the National Championships of Rock, Grim needs to find a solution – quickly. They hold an audition, but have no luck finding a suitable band member, so they have to let nine­year-old Thilda become their bass player – on cello. As their designated driver they assign the local rally talent, Martin. What they don’t know is that he doesn’t have a driver’s license. They embark on a crazy journey across Norway. With the police and the parents chasing them, this will be a race against the clock to get to Tromsø in time for the event of their lifetime.

director’s statement
I wish to make a “Little Miss Sunshine for kids” - set in a band environment, about four youngsters who are dealing with different individual problems, but find strength in each other. I want to make a tender and funny film, which is not only a roadtrip to the Championship of Rock, but a coming-of-age story where the main characters come together, find comfort and confidence in each other, and together solve their problems.
I am passionate about creating great stories for children and young people, told in their own eye level. My strongest film experiences I had was as a child and adolescent, and I want through my films to provide such experiences to the new generations.
My own adolescence consisted of music, and the dream of becoming a "rock star" with my own band. We participated in a Norwegian Rock Championship final in Oslo, and my band became the Regional Champions in some other competitions in the early nineties. This was tremendously big for me at the time, and this "larger than life" feeling is something I want to create in this film.
I want this film to be fresh and fun, with poetic moments, and lots of energy. With Los Bando Immortale I want to make a funny, thrilling and entertaining road movie - a story about music and friendship - and following your dreams.
