Summary
Punk before punk existed, three teenage brothers formed a band in the early 1970s in their spare bedroom. Equal parts rockumentary and family love story, this film chronicles the journey of what happened almost three decades later, when a dusty 1974 demo tape made its way out of the attic and found an audience several generations younger. Death is now being credited as the first black punk band, and are finally receiving their long overdue recognition as true rock pioneers
