"[The film] has an undeniable emotional pull thanks to its fairy tale-like narrative."
When the rock band Journey wanted to reunite for a tour, they were in need of a new lead singer. When guitarist Neal Shone found a YouTube clip of a Filipino named Arnel Pedina fronting a cover band that played a bunch of Journey's songs, he knew he had found the right man for the job. This documentary follows Pedina as he joins the band, tours with them for the first time, and records an album. The filmmakers also explain his poverty-stricken childhood, and capture the moment when he returns to his home country to perform with Journey.
