Presented by Belmont World Film as part of their 14th Annual Family Festival

Directed by Luke Meyer
USA | 2016 | 92 min. | English

Age 9+ ($9)
Three 12-year-old friends from Brooklyn spend their weekends performing in Times Square as Unlocking the Truth, a band that plays a blend of heavy metal and speed punk. When Alan Sacks, the co-creator of Welcome Back Cotter, decides to take them on as a client it not only leads to national press coverage, but also gigs at concerts such as Coachella and opening for Metallica, as well as a $1.8 million record deal. Despite their success, they still just want to be kids.
