Synopsis

Drama set in the world of rock and roll about two brothers and their best friend who form a rock band. When one of their songs becomes a modest hit, they head to L.A. where the reality of the music business begins to tear them apart.

Beyond Gravity, a group fronted by singer-songwriter-guitarist Lance and his hard-living brother Mike, and managed by their boyhood pal Ben, have finally landed a recording contract. The three have worked for this since high school in their hometown of Austin, Texas. As they head out to Los Angeles to record for indie label Rage Records, Lance vows to his wife -- Beyond Gravity's bass player Chelsea -- to stay focused on things that really matter -- the music. However, a year later, there's still no release, no tour, no video. Part of the delay is due to Mike's growing substance addictions and stretches in rehab. When Mike is busted for heroin possession, he's given one last chance to clean up his act, or he's out of the band. Mike is soon found dead of an overdose; Chelsea quits the band to stay at home with their young son; Lance regroups with new band members; and Ben begins to succumb to temptations of power and money.
