In the backwoods of British Columbia, Canada, three small but dedicated crews of adventure seekers were quietly changing the course of a sport and carving their paths in history. And it was all happening unbeknownst to each other, the cycling world, and ultimately themselves.

This film is the origin story of a small movement of mountain bikers and filmmakers who rose up, challenged the status quo, and turned the sport of cycling on its head. All they wanted was to feel free with no rules, no sponsors, and no claim. Just the raw freedom of riding their bicycles down the unthinkable. This film is about the tipping point when freeride mountain biking became a global sports phenomenon, and the people who were passionate enough to make it happen in the face of industry adversity, injury, and heartache. This is the story of the moment that changed everything and was the birth of the sport that nobody wanted.
