    Toni, Sami, Pertti and Kari: Finland’s most kick-ass punk rock band is a group of guys with mental disabilities. Enthralled by punk music, these four play music that expresses the desire for freedom and rage against society both simply, and powerfully. They are loved by many punk fans. The camera follows them in their daily lives, focusing on band practice, rehearsal, live performances and even selling records. It gracefully depicts the four members’ unique and striking personalities and charm as well as the tumultuous emotions born between the four of them.
