This documentary follows Pug, a 13-year-old boy from Baltimore’s Westside who yearns to join the urban dirt bike riders known as the 12 O’Clock Boys: young African American men who tear around the city, popping wheelies and weaving through traffic. As his fascination grows, it begins to eclipse everything else in his life.
