Won't Anybody Listen | 2001
Frank Rogala and his younger brother Vince form a rock band named "NC-17", and feel misunderstood in their small midwestern hometown. They pack up and leave for the bright lights of Hollywood in search of that elusive recording contract. However, they soon realise that the glitzy Hollywood of their dreams is becoming a seedy dumping ground where they find themselves one of 50,000 bands struggling to make it. Will they survive the pressures of finance, family and even government and persevere? And if so, at what cost? Humbled by the brutal realities of the record industry and the corporate business machine, the musicians are forced to balance their desire for financial success with their need for artistic redemption.
