You don't have to like punk to like this movie

When this documentary was released – to rave reviews – it was touted as being about the first African-American punk band, but in truth, it’s a story about family. The Detroit-bred Hackney brothers struggled with being ahead of their time, eventually disbanding and rarely speaking of their music, until a set of events brought their recordings into the hands of a new, receptive audience... including one of their sons, who had no idea about his family’s history. If you’re not a punk fan, don’t fear: in the end, this is a story about mothers and fathers, brothers and sons.
