Tim Zom, alias Zombie, grew up among violence and crime in a trouble spot in Rotterdam-Zuid. As a child, the long-haired rebel clung to skateboarding, which seems to be a life-saving decision now. The raw documentary follows Tim from the moment he makes his international breakthrough. Images of spectacular kickflips and rail grinding alternate with painfully candid interviews. Will Zombie manage to become a skateboard hero and shake off his dark past?
