Do you have the force to hold on to your Iron Maiden tickets? Using some of Iron Maiden’s most famous tracks, such as Aces High and The Trooper, Mauricio Leiva-Cock tells the story of two young metalheads coasting aimlessly through Bogota’s alleys on the day of Iron Maiden’s first-ever concert in Colombia. Their day is wrecked and their friendship is tested when hoodlums steal their most valued possession: the tickets to see their favorite band perform live.
