Meet Slash, a rock 'n' roll band on the edge - the edge of fame, fortune, and now, death itself. They've got the looks, the attitude and the music. Slash would kill to make it big. But they might just get killed in the process. At the moment they're on a road to nowhere. They're playing dingy clubs and smelly venues. One night, a stranger appears with a letter from Mac's father, Jeremiah MacDonald. Jeremiah wants Mac to return to the family farm to attend the funeral of his Aunt. Mac's answer is short and brutal: no way. But the stranger's response is even odder. He pulls a small, crudely-carved figurine from his pocket. It draws Mac irresistibly back... back to a place he thought he'd left behind fourteen years ago. For Slash, it's the beginning of a helter-skelter spiral into madness and mayhem as their rock 'n' roll dream collides with a terrible family secret.
