Synopsis

Unbelievable: Bruno wakes up in bed next to Caroline, his long time crush. But tomorrow she’s off for school in France, and maybe she only granted this miracle as a parting gift for her long-time friend. So tonight is Bruno’s last chance, and tonight, as it happens, Broken Social Scene, her favorite band, is throwing a big outdoor bash. Maybe if Bruno, with the help of his best pal Blake, can score tickets and give Caroline a night to remember, he can keep this miracle alive.

A hot summer’s night. A show that tops all expectations and resonates deep into the morning, into the lives of three close friends. Friends…closer than they knew.

NOMINEE – Juno Award, Music DVD of the Year

“3-1/2 Stars (out of 4)… A film about Toronto rock collective Broken Social Scene framed by footage of a free concert, director Bruce McDonald and his writing partner Don McKellar slide in an intriguing little love story, resulting in something close to brilliant.”

Peter Howell, The Toronto Star
