Punk Rock Syndrome is about Finland's most popular punk rock band, Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät, following the artists on their journey from obscurity to fame. We watch as they experience the moments that lead to their songwriting—love, anger, and friendship. We observe as they record, write, tour and interact with their fans. Punk Rock Syndrome is a backstage pass into the lives and jobs of the four mentally handicapped band mates.
