In Nepal, the metal scene is thriving. From its beginning at the end of the 90s, where only a few bands existed, the scene has spread to around forty active bands. The film meets five of them and actors of that underground movement. A generation of Nepalis who wants to get emancipated from traditions and violences that the country has known the last twenty years..
