It tells a very personal story about the band fighting for their creative lives after being sued for 30 million dollars by their own record label. The documentary gives intimate access to singer/actor Jared Leto (“Requiem for a Dream,” “Dallas Buyers Club”) and his band as they fight this relentless lawsuit with record label Virgin/EMI. Originally going to be a documentary about recording their third studio album This Is War, it turned into a battle of record label greed and saw the band having everything taken away including their art, work, and dreams. Opening up his life for the camera during months of excruciating pressures, Leto reveals the struggles his band must face over questions of art, money and integrity.
They fought for their lives and filmed it all. The band made the entire film by themselves including the shooting, editing, producing, directing and even financed it. Support the band and independent cinema.
