Over the course of their teenage years, the seven talented members of the band Dúné have achieved more than most people do in an entire lifetime. In two years the film follows the energetic band, which suddenly pops up. With expectations that everything is possible, if one dares to pursue your dreams, the young band releases their first album as 18 years old high-school students still living at home. The album receives an overwhelming reception by critics and audiences and suddenly they are professional musicians, who have to keep up with the new expectations that follow a success. From rehearsals to student parties - and directly on to playing in front of 20.000 people in Germany with a huge third day hangover. Establishing of own firm, meetings with record company and manager, while they also just have to leave the safe environment of their childhood home and move to the capital. A short stopover, where the only thing they managed to get to know, was the subway back and forth from the airport, before their journey takes them further out into the world.
