Warmly and seriously about punk nostalgy
This warm, fresh story tells about punk subculture in a little town in the eastern part of Finland. During a summer a group of youngsters get closer to their dream having a chance to perform their own music at the big town stage. The young director Perttu Leppä tells about a period he has lived trough. We can watch the episodes smiling with him. "Long Hot Summer" is a remarkable work conserning punk energy and music making in the 1980´s.
