The Punk Voyage

From the rehearsal space to Eurovision with Finland's developmentally impaired punk band number yksi. A docu-comedy - with its heart in the right place.

Love triangles, friendship and rock n' roll are mixed together into one big cocktail in the atypical Finnish punk band Petti Kurikan Nimipäivat's last year before they call it a day. The four band members and best friends Pertti, Sami, Toni and Kari all have autism or Down's syndrome, and with their songs about farting animals and life as an outsider, they have become a part of the Finnish collective consciousness. Just as a crisis in the band is threatening the idyll, they are selected for the Eurovision Song Contest. With the motto 'We are the wankers' they embark on an entertaining journey, where laughter and tears often come in rapid succession. Tempers are running especially high when the band's roadie can't keep his fingers from the drummer Toni's lady, or when Kari and Pertti's conflict escalates during an interview. Follow the four friends on their turbulent journey from the rehearsal room to the red carpet in Vienna, and to their last ever concert with a bare ass and mosh pit.
