In 2007, 11 years after one of the most influential American punk bands, Jawbreaker, called it quits the three members – Blake Schwarzenbach, Chris Bauermeister, and Adam Pfahler – reconnected in a San Francisco recording studio to listen back to their albums, reminisce and even perform together. Follow the band as they retell their “rags to riches to rags” story rife with inner band turmoil, health issues, and the aftermath of signing to a major label.
