In a light babyblue old Dodge with horns placed on the hood of the van they drive around tracking tough pools and ramps. For finding these they literally have to dig shit. An unused tunnel construction stuffed with cow shit in the Swedish countryside challenge them as well as the professional competition Bowl-A-Rama i Getxo, Bilbao, where the competition is high among the worlds best skaters under a sticking heat and sun. But not only the skating challenges Janne and Johnny, so does also the long lasting friendship that forces the question, what is friendship?

Or may it be Jannes surprise for Johnny and the realization that they can´t live without each other that breaks the ice between them?
