THE ASPHALT SUN

Artyom Belov is 15 years old. This is the very age, when numerous transformations keep happening to a person, making him live in limbo. Artyom is no exception. He is neither an adult, nor a kid.
During his last “childish” summer, Artyom has to face a lot: Artyom gets betrayed by his own father, who decides to stay abroad after finishing his dance tour, Artyom loses his best friend, and falls in love for the first time. All Artyom has now is his skateboard, a very fresh and unknown thing to the USSR youth. After having lost almost everything, Artyom finds his mission - victory in a local skateboarding tournament, and he is willing to do whatever it takes.
