Synopsis

A chronicle of the birth of the U.S. Air Guitar Championships as legions of aspiring rock stars live out their dreams on a quest to become the world champion in a strange world where musical ability plays second fiddle to virtual virtuosity. As the film un-reels, two aspiring rock legends strum and strut their way towards glory and the coveted national title. C. Diddy, a samurai warrior clad in a "Hello Kitty" breast plate and red kimono, emerges as an early favorite. But his arch nemesis from the Lower East Side, Björn Türoque, is not far behind. While C. Diddy threatens to unleash his self-professed "Asian Fury" on his competitors, Björn vows to take Diddy down. As the film reaches its climax, the future of Air hangs in the balance; will Björn's technical prowess, stage presence, and airness' be enough to take him to the top, or will C. Diddy conquer all to become America's first supreme being of Air -Guitar?
