This 2012 release featured Randy Wayne portraying a young man by the name of Caleb. He is a fatherless teenager, and he considers skateboarding to be the beginning and end of all things important in his life. His life dream, and only thing he seems to care about is becoming a sponsored skater and getting financial freedom enough to leave his old life behind forever.

His mother soon falls ill and he has to face the fact that he has not exactly been the most ideal son. He is forced into assuming new responsibility such as her personal care regarding her illness. Soon Caleb is all alone, and finds old love letters from his father to his mother that encourage him to seek out his father.

Caleb gets in touch with Jack and learns that his entire life his father has only lived a town away. This is an uneasy reunion, but one that teaches Caleb the power of forgiveness and the impact one person can have on another. A lot of Caleb's clarity in certain situations comes from the guidance and imparted wisdom of Caleb's homeless friend Ralph. The film features religious overtones, and a lot of subject matter pertaining to seeking a life full of faith and forgiveness.

The movie also features a good deal of skateboarding footage. While some of this is amateur skating, there are some cameos within the film from a couple of professionals in the sport like Brian Sumner and Christian Hosoi. Aside from these cameos and the performance of Randy Wayne, the movie also stars John Schneider and Rosanna Arquette as Caleb's parents.

The film was directed and partially written by Johnny Remo. The other writer in the mix was Daniel Backman. This movie was released in June 2012 from Skipstone Pictures. Initially it was released on a limited basis into theaters, but would go to DVD only a short time later.
