Exploding from Dayton, Ohio in the mid-90s, Brainiac quickly gained a formidable reputation in the US indie rock scene, yet sounded years ahead of their contemporaries. Touring with the likes of Beck, and being courted by several major labels, their ascent was suddenly halted when their supremely talented, charismatic frontman Tim Taylor was tragically killed in a car accident. Drawing on interviews with the band members, plus Steve Albini, members of Mogwai, At The Drive-In, The Jesus Lizard and more, director Eric Mahoney brings to the fore the story of a band that, through tragedy, were denied the spotlight they so truly deserved.
