We all had a tour T-Shirt. At least it seemed that way. That easily identifiable patch on either the crotch or across both breasts. That standard square logo you instantly recognized as the one and only, guaranteed to tear-your-face-off, unique, voice bending, galloping sound of time shifting riffs from the iconic 1990s band known as the smalls. The smalls: forever is a long time is the beautifully shot, wickedly entertaining, fun, and surprisingly powerful, poignant, and touching untold story of Western Canada’s little secret. Metal. Punk. Country. Jazz. One of a kind. the smalls were a meme before memes were memes, and they went viral before anyone knew what that meant, or even had the internet. the smalls live shows drew rabid sell-out crowds and even provoked a riot, but after grinding it out in bars and nightclubs for more than a decade, these enigmatic small town giants in winter boots and John Deere hats suddenly called it quits at the peak of their success and said Goodbye Forever. After 13 years apart, the smalls reformed for one last redemptive tour—closing the loop internally as bandmates, estranged friends, and with their long-adoring fans. From rekindled beginnings to a sold-out tour coast to coast, this film explores the journey of memory, forgiveness, and the healing power of music. You don’t need to be a fan of the band to enjoy the smalls: forever is a long time.
