Movie Synopsis:

The film is a comedy about friendship and arcade games that will put a smile on your face and tug at your heartstrings. With the help from his friends at Bip Bip Bar, Cannon Arm attempts to be the first in the world to play an arcade machine from the early '80s for 100 consecutive hours. It is an imaginative, thought-provoking and entertaining film that - with its collection of heroic outsiders, dreams about legendary world records, quirky hairdos and brilliant players - praises solidarity and the attempt to achieve the sublime.
