This video chronicles the experience of three quirky young men who desire to make their own distinctive mark in the world of popular music. This is not the story of their struggle to reach the top, and certainly not a traditional rags-to-riches recording career fantasy, but the story of what happened when they almost got there.

The music of Black Velvet Flag - punk-rock classics performed in a crooning, lounge-act style - mocked their audience's craving for the nostalgia of resisting conformity while showing us how ex-Punks grew up and reconciled the contradictions of their lives, and of their generation.

Sheldon Elias Schiffer is a filmmaker and creative director of the production company Mysterious Pictures.
