WHEN IS THEIR CD COMING OUT...?
5 July 2018 | by masonfiskSee all my reviews

A cool doc on the Brooklyn based internet band, Unlocking the Truth, which smashes more stereotypes than it creates. Tracing the ups & downs of a rock group in ascendance, we get a nebbish manager who sees a great thing but his frustrations soon fuel his regrets, a trio of talented pre-teens wondering when their big break will happen & the supportive parents who give their undying attention to their children but not at the expense of them having fun.
