For three young men growing up in Illinois, adulthood and the responsibilities that come with it are quickly approaching. After the carefree summers of their adolescence spent skateboarding, the stressors of fatherhood, money, racial tensions, domestic abuse and more start to threaten their decade-long friendship. In this poignant story, debut filmmaker Bing Liu returns home to reconnect with his two friends, bringing with him footage shot over the course of the last 10 years. One of the most critically-acclaimed docs in recent years, this Oscar-nominated film presents a powerfully honest look at the struggles of growing up and the difficulties of moving forward from heavy pasts into uncertain futures.

The film will be available for 48 hours from when you start the stream. Please note streaming is only possible from inside Canada. Need assistance? Visit our FAQ page or email us at streamingsupport@hotdocs.ca.
