Wheels is a coming of age story about Max, a 19 year old from Brooklyn who wants to be a well known DJ.

Things shift when Max's brother Terry returns home after three years in prison, forcing Max to reconcile their relationship. Max gets close to Liza, the manager of a dance studio who inspires him with her work ethic and determination. Max finds himself at a crossroads between family obligation, the streets, and pursuing his dream.

What a breath of fresh air to stumble upon this film. Beautifully shot, well written and perfect casting. Shows a side of NYC that is long forgotten to many people nowadays.
