An astounding exploration of the corrupt media that has shaped today's society into a mindless behemoth that knows more about Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton than it does the C.E.O.s who have made greed into a "positive" trait.

Recalls It Might Get Loud in capturing an experiment done for no reason other than to see what happens when creative minds smash together.

The process recorded by helmer Amir Bar-Lev holds attention with its peek at the widely ranging personalities, work methods and expertise demonstrated by musicians of different generations and varying experience.
