“I feel like I’m earthed. Here. And watch what happens if I let go.”
In the library of a fee-paying grammar school outside of Manchester, England, a group of hyper-intelligent seventeen-year-olds prepare for their final exams. As anxiety builds and hormones rage, the students must prepare for a future that seems uncertain – and survive the volatile rites-of-passage of an unstable world.
A bubbling cauldron of fear, anger and self-loathing that threatens to destroy the adolescent fantasy,
PUNK ROCK is a painful reminder of the dormant violence that lurks in the shadows of any civilized society.
