SYNOPSIS


All Cisco and his friends Junior, Patty, and Boobie want to do is spend their long summer days riding skateboards. Despite the rough life of the neighborhood, they find hope in each other and their passion to become professional skateboarders. Struggling to make ends meet, the boys resort to whatever it takes to put food on the table – including carjacking in order to make money. But one night, their take is more than they bargained for when they find a large amount of Ecstasy pills in the trunk of a stolen car. The stolen product turns into fast cash, making more money than they’ve ever seen before. What they don’t realize, is that they’ve just stolen from the local queenpin, Momma, who’s gang is already in hot pursuit. The new money and the new danger will test their brotherhood and threaten to rip apart their families. A dream that seemed so simple just weeks before has thrust them onto the slippery slope of adulthood and its violent reality.
