An intimate portrait of problem teenagers who are placed under temporary supervision.

Their parents are at their wits' end, so a temporary supervision order is the last hope for a group of teenagers in PUNKS. Now, on a remote farm in France, they're going to have to get their lives back on track, with the help of a counsellor. Filmed in perpetual close-up, the teenagers try to tame their demons with music and therapy, but problems from the past keep resurfacing. In this intimate and sincere portrait, these troubled kids show us their most vulnerable sides.
