The ranks of a choir are not exactly the first place where you’d expect to find 25 tattooed middle-aged men with beer in their hands. Yet it’s a reality. And not only that: it’s the choir that will open the concert of the legendary Black Sabbath. Every Tuesday night, the unusual group let go of their inhibitions, to the point where they turn the choir into a reality to be proud of, which increasingly resembles a family. Crucial quality during hard times: the news that one of them has only two months left to live will be an opportunity to rediscover the value of Friendship. A company to which it’s impossible not to become attached: to meet another, perhaps the last, time and together with them laugh, cry and, of course, sing.
