Camille (newcomer Rachelle Vinberg), an introverted teenage Skateboarder from Long Island, meets and 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 mother (Elizabeth Rodriguez), and falls for a mysterious skateboarder guy (Jaden Smith), but a relationship with him proves to be trickier to navigate than a kickflip. This film captures the experiences of these strong independent skillful skateboarding women in a very male-dominated space. They are totally in touch with their sexuality; bisexual, lesbian, gender-queer accepting Camille as she is even though her interest with the mysterious boy complicates her relationship with the crew.
