In 2010, they announced they were calling it a day - one final three-year tour and then stop. But things happened differently after all! "Forever and a Day" tells the story of a band that can’t stop living the dream.

Director Katja von Garnier accompanied the five musicians on their tour around the world: Bangkok, Beirut, Berlin, Budapest, Moscow, Paris and Los Angeles are the most important stages in the film, which also charts the history of the band. Archive footage recreates defining moments from five decades ago. Singer Klaus Meine and guitarists Rudolf Schenker and Matthias Jabs remember the highs and lows of their careers. And companions, admirers and friends talk about the "Scorpions" phenomenon.
