Synopsis

A comedy of conflicting ambitions, the feature documentary Heavy Load captures the excitement, sweat and romance of playing in a band through the eyes of a unique set of characters. Heavy Load is a punk band made up of musicians with and without learning disabilities, doing what they do, not for fame or celebrity, but for the joy of making noise. The band survives through a combination of raucous energy, attitude and sheer volume. 'We like to take a classic song and crucify it!' says guitarist Mick. Inspired by hopes of playing Glastonbury, how far can the band take their dreams into the mainstream?
