Directed by Luke Meyer | 2015

The members of Brooklyn speed-metal band Unlocking the Truth perform on the street in Times Square and spend every spare minute making music—when they aren’t attending seventh grade. After videos of the band’s wild performances go viral, they land a 70-year-old manager and a $1.8 million contract with Sony. But as the boys become professional musicians and enter into adulthood, they must learn the realities of life in a band. Luke Meyer’s funny, empathetic documentary offers a behind-the-scenes look at today’s music industry and a group of kids at the critical moment between recess and rock star.
