Synopsis
In late 80s, the band La Banda was one of the most influential representatives of the alternative rock scene in Sarajevo. At that time the band recorded a number of songs intended for their debut album. The war in Bosnia and Herzegovina interrupted their work on the album and La Banda ceased to exist. Ten years later, the members of the band, now living in five different countries, decide to finish the project they started long ago. That brings them back together in the city they once lived and played their music in, Sarajevo, for the first time. Do they still understand each other as well as they used to, both as friends and musicians? What happened to the city and its music scene they were once part of?
