Indie rocker vs. Idealist, arrogant ambition collides with nerdy geekiness – that’s Max and Inge, the heroes of WHEN INGE IS DANCING. So it is only natural that the two are an explosive combination. Max and Inge really really hate each other – ever since he wrote that successful, but for Inge, insulting song “When Inge is Dancing”.

When Max finally gets the chance to breakout with his band, his guitarist injures his hand right before a decisive concert. And now there is only one person who can help Max achieve his oh so sought-after success: Inge, who in his eyes can do nothing right, but boy can she play guitar...
