Director-photographer Kasper Torsting takes us on a journey through the ambitions, anxieties and joys of the creative process. Camera on his shoulder, Torsting followed the Danish rock band Kashmir over a period of four years starting just after the huge success of their album »The Good Life«. We are invited into the world and daily lives of the band members, witness their struggle against expectations, their own and others'. We follow their difficulties in overcoming, writer's block and conflicts among the band members discovering the profound respect and love they have for each other - all in the process of making their new album. »Rocket Brothers« is a true portrait of a creative process without compromises.
