Storyline

In a city of desperate musicians, it takes a little bit more than talent to beat the odds. The MoleTron keyboard was Chance's ticket out of town. With it, the gig and the girl were his. But in the Southlander game, you might get a little bit more than you bargained for. Earth people are 'onto' the sound of the MoleTron synthesizer, which Chance, the 'Chosen One' chases after.

The Best Indie Movie & Music Ever! It's Dope!! AAAA+++++
12 January 2006 | by (Echo Park) – See all my reviews

What a great original movie! Also, hilarious!!And the music is awesome! This movie has so many different moments.Have watched this movie hundreds of times because it reminds me of me and my friends. It is just like reality in my life. It keeps a great pace. Rory Cochrane plays a cool slacker dude looking for his '69 moletron. He and others get hosed by the weirded out LA crowd, looking for the moletron. It is the money, dudes and chicks! So many different music artists. I highly recommend to all that like good alternate music and original independent films. Way to go Steve and Ross who both wrote and directed the film. Ross' music can also be heard throughout the movie. Peace djtodd
