For years, Hal has been working to achieve his dream of forming a rock and roll band, but every time he gets a new member, they seem to acquire a new genre. With punk drummer Ryan, and metal-head Uli, (who ironically plays classical instruments), they only need one more man – a guitarist. After an unsuccessful day of searching at a music festival, a lone country guitarist catches Hal's eye as they eat dinner at a tavern. Country? Why not. That'll make a complete set. But, once guitarist Ricky joins them, they start getting hints that something is not quite right about him. He attracts animals like a magnet, frequently disappears at night, and doesn't seem to understand common aspects of modern daily life. As time passes and they start to find success in the music industry, the ability to keep brushing off Ricky's quirks becomes more difficult as evidence starts to mount. Finally, after a new 'talent' of Ricky's shows itself on the night of a big show, they can no longer make excuses. They need to find out what's going on. But, will forcing Ricky's secrets into the spotlight cause him to disappear into the night permanently, leaving the band in ruin without his incredible guitar playing skills? As leader, Hal has to try and reconcile fear and mistrust between his bandmates, and keep Ricky with them while also finding answers that could cause just as many problems as not knowing.
