In a world in which fame seems to arrive faster than the speed of light - often only to evaporate even more quickly - the Hamburg-based trio 1000 Robota is a remarkable phenomenon. Despite being still wet behind the ears, the band has become a huge hype in no time at all. Their energetic post-punk music and blatant social criticism have already brought them a record deal. In her documentary debut, Sandra Trostel follows the trio from the recording of their first album into a crazy vortex of attention, in which the band is interviewed by every single music journalist. With a great sense of atmosphere, Trostel shows how they negotiate the gray areas between art and commerce. The lead singer Anton says: "We want to cause creation, not to be reminiscent of it," is the leitmotif of this idealistic trio: to initiate instead of to respond, and above all not to succumb to the pressures of the free market.
