This Oscar-nominated film starts out as a tribute to the relaxed life in a skate community but goes on to reveal the roots of the vicious circle of domestic violence.

Rockford, Illinois, never recovered from a crisis: unemployment is high and crime rates even higher. For Zack, Bing and Keire, growing up in dysfunctional families, skateboarding is their only escape from an unsettled reality. Originally, DOP and debuting director Bing Liu, who filmed his friends during their childhood, intended to make an experimental skate film, but his project gradually grew into something much bigger. Created over 12 years, the film captures with extraordinary naturalness, how seemingly carefree youth is penetrated by adult responsibilities, rules, unspoken secrets and wrongs. Is it possible to grow into adulthood in this environment, avoid the mistakes of one’s parents and still remain true to oneself?
