The story of development of skateboarding in Czechoslovakia during 1975 - 1989. The skateboarding is for the director a starting point in looking for signs of freedom outside the mainstream society controlled by the communist regime. This new western sport became quite attractive and contagious kind of entertainment for young people in otherwise greyish environment of socialist Czechoslovakia. Using some old found footage never shown before, the audience will have a chance to learn more about the beginnings of this sport in the region and about the unique community.
