“There was this time when everything seemed to have come together. And so obviously it was time to go and screw it all up”. Sam is sixteen and a skater. Just so there are no terrible misunderstandings: skating = skateboarding. There’s no ice. Life is ticking along nicely for Sam: his mum’s got rid of her rubbish boyfriend, he’s thinking about college and he’s met someone. Alicia. Then a little accident happens. One with big consequences. Sam can’t run (let alone skate) away from this one. Has he got what it takes to sort it all out?
