Storyline

Ross, Penny and Crash, young... outsiders from different tribes, embark on a road trip to a huge punk show. Ross, 19, is the love child of Trish and Heroin Bob, who died before Ross was born. During their odyssey, and with the help of a healthy dose of drugs, alcohol and punk music, Ross shreds his darkly Gothic outlook and embraces life. His mother Trish, who raised Ross alone in her steam punk shop, discovers that he is in a crisis. She recruits his 'uncles,' Bob's old SLC gang, to help find him. When all collide at the concert, they are forced to deal with their unresolved relationships with Bob.

Goofs

When "John The Mod," now "Johnny Jekyll," seems to make a faux pas by mentioning death metal, it may be an intentional attempt at a joke. He never refers to himself as being Black Metal or Death Metal during the duration of the film, nor does he ever state he's an extremist. He's only described as "Norwegian Black Metal" by other characters. See more »

Just loved it ! Not a "basic" sequel but much much better.
2 March 2016 | by victoireferrariSee all my reviews

I saw the movie in NYC and I loved it. It's not a basic "sequel". It's the natural evolution of the characters, as we all did evolve since SLC Punk. New characters give even more depth to this story and the whole thing is a movie full of fun, wisdom and humanity. This movie also shows that besides major studios big money, you can still enjoy indie movies with a great story, amazing actors and a smart and strong director willing to carry his movie till it's made. I got involved in the Indiegogo crowdfunding which was a great idea. I gave the money I could give and don't regret a cent. Plus I will definitely buy the movie as soon as DVD's are available. Don't trust trollers and watch it.
