WASSUP ROCKERS is a story based on real life experiences of a group of Latino teenagers who, instead of conforming to the hip hop culture of their gang infested neighborhood, wear their clothes tight (young), listen to (and play) punk rock and ride their skateboards. Constantly harassed for being different, they have to fight to be themselves. One morning they take two City Buses into Hollywood to skate the famous “Nine Stairs” at Beverly Hills High that they always see in the popular skateboard videos. While there, they catch the attention of some rich white Beverly Hills girls – leading to trouble with the girls’ boyfriends as well as the police. The police bust them simply because they’re there (“you don’t belong here”) and they escape into Beverly Hills where they meet up with the girls and a variety of Beverly Hills residents, getting into really big trouble as they are chased by the police and residents. The boys have to get away and try to make their way to the (relative) safety of South Central.
