Liu’s debut film is a coming-of-age saga of three skateboarding friends in their Rust Belt hometown. In his quest to understand why he and his friends all ran away from home when they were younger, he follows 23-year-old Zack as he becomes a father and 17-year-old Keire as he gets his first job.

While navigating a complex relationship between his camera and his friends, he explores the gap between fathers and sons, between discipline and domestic abuse and ultimately that precarious chasm between childhood and becoming an adult. Visit SteamboatLibrary.org/events for more information.
