28 years after the band Minor Threat released the song 'Straight Edge', the drug free subculture has become a worldwide phenomenon. Originating from Punk and Hardcore music, the most widely associated perception of Straight Edge involves the abstinence from alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs.
EDGE - Perspectives on Drug Free Culture traces the subculture from its early roots in the beginning of the 1980s to this day by drawing a very differentiated and diverse picture through in-depth interviews with 12 individuals. The documentary takes the viewer behind and beyond the scenes of Straight Edge. Artists, Musicians, activists and the people that shaped the idea from the beginning, such as Ian Mackaye (Minor Threat/Fugazi), Ray Cappo (Youth of Today/Shelter) and Karl Buechner (Earth Crisis), give witness to their perception of the history of Straight Edge and comment on the praise and criticism.
