Runa and Riccardo are friends and they call each other Plusie. Sometimes they just call each other "+", to make it shorter. Their dream is to become a rock band. Once they met and started to sing about lost pets, friendship and motherhood. The songs they have written are filled with the melancholy for the loss of what they have loved most and cannot be replaced.
'Friends' is the presentation of the first ever album by The Plusies, in between a dance performance and a concert, mixing live music and eerie movement in a truly pink rock atmosphere.
Because + is plus, but also a cross.
