Ten years after Kids, Larry Clark hits the streets of South Central Los Angeles. 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, listen to and play punk rock, and ride their skateboards. Constantly harassed for being different, they have to fight to be themselves.
Wassup Rockers tracks their excursion into the heart of Beverly Hills to skate the famous "Nine Stairs" at Beverly Hills High. When the rockers attract the attention of some Beverly Hills girls fascinated by their style, mayhem ensues and their afternoon odyssey begins. Chased by the police and targeted by residents, the boys must find a way to escape and return to the (relative) safety of South Central.
