Lyrical and rough snapshots of a punk band; two parallel in-depth interviews about their music, their lives, their motivations their pilgrimage and their tour.

Last Call - Dresden Dolls follows Amanda Palmer’s former punk band, The Dresden Dolls, on their last tour in Texas. The film goes deep into the somewhat bizarre relationship of the members Amanda Palmer and Brian Viglione. On this tour the stakes are high: can they continue working together, or should they decide to separate from each other? The camera recorded everything. In-depth interview about their music, their lives, their motivations, their pilgrimage and their tour. But most of all the music of the Dresden Dolls – modern hard rock music, amazing invention, energy and talent. Only the dreams of the two musicians remained unknown.
