Storyline

Jesse Sorensen ruled Florida as a pro skateboarder for over a decade. He had it all - a lucrative skateboarding contract, girls, fame and an extravagant lifestyle. Now six years later, past his prime and his usefulness in this youth-driven culture, Jesse is dropped by his skate team. Broke, he moves in with his elderly grandmother only to discover his 17-year old niece, Samantha, crashing there as well. She is following the same slippery slope Jesse once paved, with the hottest new skater in town. Jesse must confront what he has spent his entire life avoiding - responsibility - and figure out his future once and for all. Written by Blue Llama Studios

Will appeal to people people - provides a window into life.

This was a surprising film. The notion of someone striving to get their life on track against a notion of past achievement during their prime is not new. It is perhaps something that many may identify with as an acute sense of loss and nostalgia may ensue once one has achieved a hard earned targets. This film addresses such an issue is a sensitive and dramatic way as it tells the story of a pro-skater and his attempts to restructure his life after a fail in his career path. The element of surprise was in the artistic way in which this story was related: Without wanting to include any spoilers the film-makers have clearly put a lot of thought and effort into relating this is a manor that is somewhat uplifting with a humorous element. The artistry involves a resounding sound track, a combination of black & white and colour sequences as well as some inspiring acting and direction. It is entertaining. It is also a large scale production for an independent (and therefore usually fairly low budget) film with a large cast that does not distract from the intimacy of the leads. It does not have the cheesy quality that some low-budget movies (assuming it is low budget) sometimes have. This is recommended viewing and will especially appeal to those who are interested in people and gaining an insight into the life of the lead character and bodes well for the potential of the team that have produced it.
