Yung Punx: A Punk Parable tells the story of the punk band Color Killer, formed by four little kids, 8-12 years old, from working-class Massachusetts for a talent show. An avalanche of bookings, studio sessions, and press hits follows, eventually landing Color Killer on the stage of the prestigious Warped Tour music festival. Wary audiences and warring parents create a rocky road to rock-and-roll stardom. Rick and Morty and Saturday Night Live star Chris Parnell narrates.
This film is recommended for ages 10+, as there is some mild language used.
