VHS VS BETAMAX

VHS vs Betamax

     The year is 1979, and radio technician Tommy stands alone and left with his suitcase. The suitcase contains Tommys business dream, a movie box with a brand new VHS machine. The friend Axel thinks the idea is ridiculous. Sony’s Betamax is technically superior, and their movie collection is far more quality conscious.  This is the beginning of a family-run business adventure marked by drunkenness, revenge and action films by the meter.
