DESCRIPTION

Zack, Keire and Bing live in the Rust Belt – postindustrial area, once famous for heavy industry, now decayed. They dream to get out of here. Free time three friends have filled up partying and, above all, what they love the most in the world - skateboarding. They unexpectedly have to face a real adult life – Zack becomes a father, Keire goes to work and Bing is focusing of his psyche, healing deep childhood wounds. Barack Obama placed Minding the Gap on the list of his 2018 favorite films.
