The Punk Syndrome (Kovasikajuttu)


The Punk Syndrome is a film about Finland's most kick-ass punk rock band, Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät. The band members, Pertti, Kari, Toni and Sami, are mentally handicapped and they 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 experience strong emotions. We witness long days in the recording studio and on tour. They laugh, cry, drink and fight over who gets to sit in the front on the tour bus. Then it's time to make up and go talk to people in the audience and tell them how great their band is.

This film about the essence of punk. It's a story of handicapped people rebelling against the mainstream. This time you're allowed to stare and wonder why they act the way they do. And you'll fall in love with them as you watch how the most kick-ass punk band in Finland conquers the world.
