Kim Cannon Arm, the legend of arcades, decides to break the world game record in Gyruss. Luckily, he has similarly inclined friends happy to support him in the attempt to play the game for more than 100 hours straight.
Superficially, the documentary follows the regulars from the Bip Bip Bar gaming den full of 1980s arcades. However, a humanist essay on the power of friendship underneath is uncovered. Scientists and artists by profession, gamers by heart, all decide to honour the memory of a friend in their own way.
