In her mid-20s, Annika still lives with her parents and moves from one unpaid internship to the next - always in the vain endeavour of finding a permanent position in the music industry. But the life of this dedicated yet hapless intern is about to be turned upside down - by a Finnish rock band. After all, Annika never expected that inventing some fictitious knowledge of Finnish would land her a dream job with a record label... In order to prove herself, she is to take Finnish group "Ripili" to Germany and prepare for a band contest. Her language deception, however, results in a major problem: inadvertently, she takes Finland's most unsuccessful hardrock combo "Rypeli" to Germany. Even as she escorts the three drunken bandmates Matti, Erkki and Janne out of the airport, she realizes that this nightmare means her new career could be over before it even began. There is only one option left: she has to turn these three crazy Finns into a decent band...
