A coming-of-age story for the post-crash generation and a punk-rock manifesto of youth, love and sun-drenched Californian suburbs. Dragonslayer follows 23-year-old local skate hero and new father Josh 'Skreech' Sandoval through a golden haze of lost youth, broken homes and abandoned swimming pools, learning to live after the decline of western society.

Playing with the short documentary: Skateistan: to Live and Skate in Kabul.
