An improvised low-budget comedy feature film shot in five days across several counties in England and Wales.

19 year-old Jolene, an indie folk star is having trouble convincing her writing partner Benny to become more commercial. Too many industry types get involved, leaving Jolene feeling dazed and confused and Benny marginalised.

Now they are on a crowded tour busy on their way to a festival in the most beautiful, yet remote, location - forcing them to confront their ambitions and emotions for the first time.

Can they both get back to where they once belonged, and move forward together, or will all be lost in the noise and confusion?
