Valley of the Stereos
A hippie who would kill for peace and quiet. A heavy metaller who would rather die than turn down the volume. It could only end in.....The Valley of the Stereos!
River, a new age composer, lives in the solitiude of Tranquility Valley. There he can record water running and animal noises on his home made recording equipment without fear of interrruption. Life is good for River until Ted, a heavy metal fan looking for space to practice at full volume, occupies the only other house in the valley - right next door to River's!
The peace of the valley is shttered by Ted who can't even get up in the morning without disturbing his neighbour. Every snore, every burp, every clatter of cutlery enrages River who plots revenge.
Ted fights back with the only weapon he has at his disposal: deafening noise.
All out war prevails until River develops the ultimate weapon to silence Ted forever.
This isn't just payback. This is FEEDBACK!
