The Electrifiers won the 1984 Best New Artist Award, but have been stuck in traffic on the highway to international stardom ever since. Thirty years after their win, no one remembers their hit song and the aging band still struggles to catch its real big break between gigs at nursing homes and cheap dives. Featuring cameo appearances by real-life 80s Israeli pop icons, The Electrifiers is a blissfully sweet story in which everyone, old and slightly less old, comes of age.
