When they released their 2010 album High Violet, indie group The National finally reached stardom and embarked on their greatest tour ever. To register this moment, vocalist Matt Beringer called his brother Tom to shoot backstage footage of the tour. Nine years younger and not really into his brother's band, Tom would rather listen to heavy metal and cannot understand the group's motivation, nor its fans, which makes for embarrassing situations along the trip. Years later, he decides to edit the film so as to expose his new-found respect, admiration and pride of his brother. Tribeca 2013.
