A group of people, who do not know each other, wake-up in an unknown location, finding that they break into uncontrolable song and dance whenever they feel a heightened emotion. This sci-fi comedy musical - the first one produced in New Zealand - was put together in Christchurch, on a volunteer, very low budget basis. I was prepared to be disappointed, given some aspects of the trailer that has been playing at YouTube, but the quality of the music more than makes up for any weak aspects of the story or acting. The music and dance talent is what shines here and if you like the music as much as I think you might, you're in luck, for a soundtrack cd is being produced along with a dvd. Recommended.
