The Adelaide Street Dreams - a group of outcasts, sport fanatics, high school students, and adults…all living in a skater culture. When the day comes, the skaters are out and about, defying the law and society's judgmental views on skating. At night, another skating group from the UK is hellbent on ruling the streets to ensure full popularity in skating should either side get provoked into starting a social war.
Meanwhile, a disgraced yet ambitious young writer Josh de Costa makes the decision to move to Australia to cover the worldly views of skater culture. Posing as a transfer student, Josh gradually enters the world of skating and gets absorbed into the social lifestyle, abandoning the societal side and becoming a new and well-respected member.
All this is put to the test when the former leader of the Adelaide Street Dreams suspects Josh's true identity and his loyalty to the group slowly diminishes. With the former member playing both sides to the UK Hogs and Adelaide Street Dreams, Josh is believed to use his experiences and the people involved as propaganda to end skating and to spark a war. This leaves Josh wondering whether or not the street war will take place or if his own life and career are endangered by the people he once admired and followed.
