Foo Fighters super fan Fabio Zaffagnini knows it will take something big to get his favorite band to come all the way to his hometown of Cesena, Italy for a concert. So, he decides to get their attention by gathering 1,000 musicians to play the band's “Learning to Fly” in unison. We Are the Thousand follows Fabio as he overcomes logistical problems like making sure people will show up and getting them all to keep the same beat. Even if the Foo Fighters are not your favorite band, you’ll love this fun and uplifting look at what it takes to bring people together for a common cause and how lives are changed in the process.
