Intimate glimpses of one very special day in the lives of high-school seniors from an industrial corner of the Florida Everglades: prom's over, the future is uncertain, and the irresistible pull of the beach makes the long-time friends drive 60 miles to chill, pose and frolic in the waves.

    • Synopsis
    • School's out. For seniors in Pahokee — a small, mainly African-American industrial town in Florida Everglades — the Monday after prom is 'Skip Day.' Multitudes of long-time friends miss their lessons, instead driving sixty miles to hang, chill and ponder their futures on the windy dunes of the Atlantic shoreline. The film intimately observes the shared joys of communal activity and extravagant display which bind these engaging teens in rites of passage toward an uncertain adulthood.
