All Foo Fighters super-fan Fabio Zaffagnini ever wanted was for his favourite band to put on a concert in his hometown of Cesena, Italy. But how do you convince the world's biggest rock band to play a town they've likely never even heard of? You gather 1000 musicians from all over Italy; you teach them to play "Learn to Fly"—in unison, mind you; post the video to YouTube, and then hope for the best!

Arguably the most joyous and exhilarating experience you will have at a movie this year, WE ARE THE THOUSAND's ode to the power of LIVE music is exactly the tonic we need right now!
