THE PUNK SYNDROME is about the Finnish punk rock band Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät. Band members Pertti, Kari, Toni and Sami, who all have learning disabilities, play their music with attitude and pride. They laugh, cry, drink, and fight over who gets to sit at the front of the tour bus.
Their songs are about problems in society, as well as about things they face in everyday life: how going to the pedicurist sucks, and the misery of living in a group home. They give a piece of their minds both to politicians and to people whose attitudes towards those with intellectual disabilities need improvement.
THE PUNK SYNDROME is about the essence of punk. It’s a story of disabled people rebelling against the mainstream. This time you’re allowed to stare, as the most kick-ass punk band in Finland conquers the world!
