A rebellious, tight-knit circle of friends, devoted to skateboarding and their grindcore band, have their friendship put to the test when they're faced with their worst nightmare: losing the only safe haven they have — a squatted storage container in the middle of nowhere. The story of growing up ends when the container is destroyed in front of their eyes. The film was inspired by a group of teenagers who transformed a humble storage container into a vibrant, tolerant, rebellious community.
