A documentary about punk rock and all the colors of life. Been there and seen that? No, you haven't.
Here we have a Finnish punk band of four mentally disabled guys. We usually don't see the everyday life of mentally disabled in documentaries, and even more rare are the times they are seen expressing their thoughts, loves and frustrations through rough rock music.
Now we do. We are able to watch lives we usually don't see and learn to know the people behind those speech difficulties and weird face expressions. We see how they gain popularity and become famous. This documentary takes you to a different rock'n'roll life with a professional touch. A well-made documentary that moves gently but close to the skin of its characters.
