Jukka Kärkkäinen and Jani-Petteri Passi's upcoming documentary "The Punk Syndrome," which is currently slated to make its North American premiere March 12th at SXSW, has been acquired by distributor GoDigital, the company announced today.

"The Punk Syndrome" follows the Finish punk rock band Pertti Kurikan's four members, each grappling with mental disabilities, as they attempt to move from obscurity to musical stardom, along the way falling in love and dealing with the new shape their lives are taking.

"This is a documentary unlike any we've seen, telling a story unlike anything we've heard," said Logan Mulvey, CEO of GoDigital. "We are so honored and excited to be part of the process of sharing it - and the motivational music of its star band, Pertti Kurikan - with the world."

While no release date has yet to be set, GoDigital plans a digital release of the film later this summer.
