The DVD movie contains only live performances between 2006 and 2007, with mainly original tunes, plus Florentine pogen with italian rock star Elio, (this song i authorized directly from Gail Zappa, Frank 's wife). In the extra menu there also a live perfomance of the Ossi Duri with David Surkmap, Pavlovìs dog Leader, from a tv show in Italy on 2001.

It's a movie about their imaginary world with animation, like Bruce Bickford, and some fiction. With this dvd Ossi Duri start to release material for their own label "LaZaRiMus": they would like to theri contribution to the bands that have "no commercial potential"
