Born on the floor of her parent’s cowshed in 1970 just as Black Sabbath were giving birth to heavy metal, Hera leads a happy childhood until her older brother is killed in a farming accident. Blaming herself for the tragedy, she takes on her brother’s love for metal, yearning for escape and a life playing music. Playing guitar at her brother’s grave, and visiting the bus stop leading out of town but never leaving, her life seems to be on hold until a group of fans arrive having somehow gotten hold of one of her tapes, and everything begins to change. A charming, funny tale of cows, snowy mountains and hard rock.
