QUEENS OF CONCRETE is a coming-of-age documentary, following three young skateboarders over five years. Hayley, Ava and Charlotte have their sights firmly fixed on competing in the 2020 Summer Olympics – the first ever Games to hold a skateboarding event. With just a few spots available on the Australian Olympic team, the pressure to impress the Olympic Committee is huge.
At the same time, the girls face the familiar obstacles of teen years. Charlotte is constantly told she’s too young to do anything, Ava tests her freedom with or without her parent’s permission, and Hayley already feels the weight of past success on her shoulders.
Through all this the girls are continually reminded that they participate in a male dominated sport, and must continue to defy tradition in order to achieve their Olympic dreams.
Each girl will take a different journey over the five year period. Where will it take them and who will they be at the end?
