Storyline

"Virgin Blacktop: a New York skate odyssey" is an often thrilling and sometimes heart-breaking coming-of-age story about group of 1977 suburban New York City kids. When they met, they had nothing in common except a love of skateboarding. Despite their vastly different ages, races and economic backgrounds, they formed "The Wizards," a competitive, traveling team. Now, 40 years later, they remain friends but their lives have followed very different paths, from board rooms to jail cells.
