The dusty Mexican border town of El Centro serves as the backdrop for a 13- year old BMX rider named Erik, and the hero who fuels his passion. In this visceral and tactile film, we experience the world as a messy heap of impressions and obstacles, including emotional and physical challenges begging to be overcome by the right recipe of grit and determination. There is a fierceness, a rawness to imagery that puts us in the mind of kid from a small, sweltering town. Erik doesn't know much of the outside world at his young age, but in the glowing light of his father's support and admiration, that hasn't stopped him from dreaming big. For Erik and his father, and every kid riding in the streets of El Centro, this is the prequel to a story of triumph over adversity, of hope blooming in an unlikely place.
