THE PUNK SYNDROME is a film about Finland’s most kick-ass punk rock band, Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät. The band’s mentally handicapped members, Pertti, Kari, Toni and Sami, play their music with a lot of attitude and pride. We follow these professional musicians on their journey from obscurity to popularity. We watch them fight, fall in love and witness long days in the recording studio and on tour. It’s a film about the essence of punk – it’s a story of handicapped people rebelling against the mainstream.
