From the DVD back cover:
Brian Johansen (Rocky Votolato) returns to his hometown after four years to discover that things have changed. The scene has become a violent place in his absence. Old friends have come to blows and chosen sides.
It's Punk vs. Straight Edge - and the streets are not safe.
Into this mess blunders Brian, only to find that his two closest childhood friends (John Pettibone of Himsa and Dann Gallucci of The Murder City Devils) are now the leaders of opposing gangs. The Punk and Straight Edge scenes have lost sight of the common ground they once shared, and violent conflicts between these two groups have become an everyday occurrence.
Upon learning of this situation, Brian sets out to reunite the scene with common sense and reason. But will Brian's perspective prevail? Or will he too be pushed past The Edge...
Set against a backdrop of mid-90's Seattle and completely cast with people from the Punk, hardcore, and Indie Rock scenes of that era, THE EDGE OF QUARREL has been described as "a welcome piece of filmmaking for any punk who enjoys such endeavors" (Jay Dead, MRR) and "the cinematic equivalent of the scene it's based around... rough, honest, and unconcerned with what anyone else is doing." (Skizz Cyzyk, Microcinefest Guide)
And the bands TRIAL, BOTCH, and THE MURDER CITY DEVILS.
