About the film
Through touching and sincere interviews, the documentary highlights the complicated life of the Rotterdam skateboarder Tim Zom and his dark past growing up in the difficult area of Rotterdam South. Skateboarding became his passion, saving Tim, whose life changed completely, now recognized as an international skateboarder personality.
The documentary is a succession of interviews and skateboarding tricks, kickflips and rail grinds, but director Billy Pols mainly focuses on the hard-to-fathom Zom himself, still fighting the difficult circumstances of his life. The skater opens up about his troubled life, becoming transparent to the audience.
