Two punks live in Salt Lake City. The film covers their all-day routine. The realism of the character-narrated movie may be discussed.

Anyone who has spent time in the American punk underground will find many points of reference in SLC Punk. The film is an amazingly realistic portrayal of the suburban punk subculture.
