Ben, Sonny, Lloyd, Sam and Ronnie are friends from Sydney who are all big fans of AC/DC.

Twelve years pass and the five friends have each gone their own ways. When Ronnie dies from being struck by a lightning bolt while playing golf, the remaining four unite and decide to fulfill the promise they made together long ago.
