Pour Phillip, le skate, c'est toute sa vie. L'école est simplement un intermède entre les séances de skate où il essaie des sauts difficiles et déjoue les gardiens de sécurité. Lorsque son meilleur ami Wally et lui rencontrent un skater professionnel qui fait des vidéos pour son site Web, Phillip pense qu'ils peuvent faire la même chose, et faire de l’argent en même temps. Lorsque leur site Web devient populaire, et leur rapporte de l'argent, ils se sentent obligés de faire des cascades de plus en plus dangereuses.

Philip lives for skateboarding. School is merely the break between trying to land a difficult jump and outrunning the security guards. When he and his best friend Wally meet a professional skateboarder who videotapes himself for his website, Philip thinks they can do it too—and make money at the same time. When they start getting hits on their website—and making money—they start to feel the pressure to do more and more dangerous stunts.
