A collective of young Cape Coloured (people of mixed race) skateboarders from Valhalla and other lower-class areas of The Flats, lacking not only the infrastructure but the necessary sense of safety to skate on the streets of their own neighbourhood, decide to drive into downtown Cape Town one day to skate there instead. Their simple act of entering the city’s public space represents a thrilling violation of the stablished social order, an unwelcome encroachment upon the daily trials and tribulations of Cape yuppies.
