A newbie to the world of competitive air guitar, Nina thinks it’ll be a cinch to take home a win. Spoiler alert: It’s definitely not. The air guitar community is tight-knit and die-hard, but they decide to pitch in and teach Nina the ins and outs of their craft. With the help of Shreddy, Golden Thunder, and Facebender, Nina learns that there’s much more to this art form than just playing pretend. She’ll have to go all in and let go of her inhibitions.
