Film synopsis

A film to raise your glass to – these guys prove with a little bit of blood, sweat and tears – anyone can enjoy the good life and keep on rockin’! When enigmatic TOOL, PUSCIFIER and A PERFECT CIRCLE front man Maynard James Keenan took a leave of absence for a sleepy Arizona ghost town and teamed up with formidable winemaking partner Eric Glomski to pioneer a sustainable wine industry in the harsh climates of the Arizona desert, a lot of people chalked it up to a midlife crisis minus the sports car or the case of a celebrity with more money than sense.  What they didn’t realise was just how serious this rocker was about meeting this challenge with his usual hands-on approach. With winemaking in his blood and his mentor by his side, the next chapter in this unexpected winemaker’s life began, as did the efforts of Keenan and Glomski to develop a world-class vineyard in the most unlikely of places.  Featuring exclusive PUSCIFIER concert footage as well as special appearances by Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil Series), Patton Oswalt (Young Adult) and Bob Odenkirk (Breaking Bad), this perceptive film offers a crackling blend of insightful anecdotes, behind-the-scenes secrets, erudite and controversial opinions, a sharp sense of humour and of course wall-to-wall wine!
