Zeus, the most popular and beloved heavy metal band in Cuba, has had to fight to perform for over 20 years. Now they're superstars in their own country, but unknown to the outside world. In this 11-minute documentary, American filmmaker Nicholas Brennan follows this legendary band to discover what it really means to be a Cuban rock star. Through intimate interviews and gripping live concert footage, a portrait of five musicians trying to live both their lives and their dreams emerges.
