Description: Set against the landscape of upstart malls, Jordache jeans and iconic hang outs, "Skateland" is as much a story about embracing who you are as it is about moving on. The personal drama marks the poignant transition of a group of high school friends into adulthood. Set in the early 1980s, in small town Texas, it is genuine, touching and candid snapshot of the lives of a close-knit group of friends who are confronted with the realities of the precarious world around them. The film revolves around a charismatic young skating rink manager named Ritchie Wheeler, brother and sister Brent and Michelle Burkham and the legendary, wise-cracking, Kenny Crawford as their dreams and carefree lives start to fade into an uncertain future.
