A supernatural comedy about a group of mythology-loving, heavy metal fans on a drum circle retreat in the desert. Following the recent death of their founder, the legendary DethDog drummer Joshua Tree, they've gathered for one final weekend of chanting, drumming and drinking, plus a few metal-inspired "rituals," When a somewhat clueless new member proves to be more than he seems, a whole series of life-altering surprises - including at least one other unexpected guest - begin to unfold.
