Zack, Keire and Bing spend a lot of time on their skateboards. Skateboarding is their common passion that makes them happy and liberates them. It is not only the jumps and falls on the asphalt pump track that they experience together, they also “skate” together through life marked by troubled relations, family violence and confrontations with the past. Through this documentary film, the director, who is also one of the three protagonists, slowly reveals their deeply personal stories of growing up and the gaps between the world of the young and the world of grown-ups. This year’s Oscar nominee for best documentary film.
