In their first ever feature documentary nearly sixty years after they met as teenagers, THE ZOMBIES tell their story navigating the tumultuous music industry over the decades and making one of the most influential albums of all time: Odessey and Oracle. “She’s Not There” made them the first British band after The Beatles to reach #1 in the US. After years of touring and many missteps in the 60s, the band sadly missed out on their biggest moment yet, when “Time of the Season” hit #1 and became a global success, inspiring new generations each year. Together they look back on their journey, where true friendship led them to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
