Camille, a reserved teenager, befriends an all-girl, New York City-based skateboarding crew called Skate Kitchen. She falls in with the in-crowd, has a falling-out with her mom, and falls for a mysterious skateboarder, but a relationship with him proves to be trickier to navigate than a kickflip.
Casting members of the all-girl gang of badass skateboarders, Skate Kitchen, Crystal Moselle’s film is a joyful thrill ride through the sun-drenched streets of N.Y.C. Come for the kickflips, stay for the honest depiction of youthful vulnerability, and the power of friendship in one’s coming-of-age.
