In an Illinois town suffering through hard economic times, three young men bond over skateboarding as a way to escape volatile families. But as adolescence gives way to adulthood, the challenges of work and family and the residue of domestic abuse threaten to transform their decade-long friendship. Skateboarding wanes in importance as one of the trio, now a filmmaker (Bing Liu), tries to come to terms with his past and the realities of growing up.
