PROGRAM NOTE

John dreams to be a musician but has hardly any talent for it. One day, he happens to join an indie band by chance to fill a vacant position. The center of the band is Frank, who keeps a large mask on whenever he is singing, or even when in a shower. Gaining recognition from people for his musical talents, John uploads videos on Youtube and Twitter featuring their album-making process. As a result, the band is invited to a music festival. However, John is consistently in conflict with other members who just want to stay as amateur musicians. While John tries to take off the mask, Frank is becoming more unstable than ever. Will they be able to successfully make their debut?
