Synopsis

The Iceman, Babyglider, X, Cat and their friends are Traceurs, doing Le Parkour, or free-running, making death-defying leaps and stunts across rooftops and walls… with style. “As we grow older, they tell us ‘Stop that!’, ‘Sit still.’ Walls aren’t for jumping, they’re for keeping us in. Channelling us all the same way – through the city…onto the scrap heap. That my friend…is what’s really dangerous…”
