Breaking a Monster

Breaking a Monster

Directed by Luke Meyer

Bonding over their love of music, three 7th graders from Brooklyn spend their weekends playing heavy metal/speed punk in Times Square as "Unlocking the Truth." When the band's internet fame explodes and the music industry comes calling, Malcolm, Jarad and Alec feel like anything is possible, but are soon confronted with the realities that come with being rockstars. BREAKING A MONSTER chronicles the first year as the band goes from three kids just playing the music they love, to the very adult world of touring, managers and a $1.8 million record contract - all in pursuit of living out their heavy metal dreams.
