Synopsis: When his parents flee the country, So-yo (Cheon Jeong-myeong), a shy high school student, is left on his own. His love for the sport eventually causes him to meet up with a group of skater boys that include Moggy (Kim Kang-woo), a kid whose awesome board skills immediately capture Soyo’s attention and quickly falls in love with the gang leader?s girlfriend. Mixing flashy, skateboarding action sequences with quiet observations, director Jeong follows So-yo and the young, dangerous crew as they compete for a spot in the World Games. But when Moggy is forced to shoot a commercial to score a plane ticket to the world inline skating championships, he snaps and deliberately causes an accident. Moggy’s act puts the whole gang into debt, forcing the team to scramble for money to recoup the loss. A rift soon develops among the team members: Moggy stops skating, Hanju and Gapba want to leave as well, and even the once-eager Soyo starts to lose interest. Can the team pull it together or is their friendship doomed to failure?
