Mimi, a groupie who followed Devils from the town, also becomes an icon with her dance moves and fashion. However, their heydays don’t last long as they lose one of the members to a fire at the club. To make matters worse, clubs are faced to be shut down due to the oppressive rule of military dictatorship, which will fundamentally take away their chances to sing.
