Penelope Spheeris poses a burning question: "Where do you see yourself five years from now?".

Penelope Spheeris poses a burning question: "Where do you see yourself five years from now?". "Nowhere, cause I’ll be dead," is the most frequent answer. The epilogue of her legendary doc series (and her favorite part of the trilogy) scours LA’s no future generation for the punk rock descendants of the 80s, embracing the desperate lives of a handful of kids who don’t believe in anything because they’ve got nothing to hope for.
