In the early 1990s, two young rockers – Steve Lee and Leo Leoni – founded one of the most successful Swiss bands of all time. Twenty-five years later, they still play gigs all over the world. 

Between concerts, recording studios and with the help of very rich archives, they tell us their turbulent story.
