Plot: What's the story about?

Growing up in West Baltimore, teenage Mouse feels the fierce pull of different forces: Between notorious ex-con Blax and concerned Detective Rivers, and between the straight path set for Mouse by his concerned mother and the dangers of gang life, which took his brother’s life. The one truth Mouse knows is that he loves the power, artistry and energy of “The Ride” — the exhilarating motorized-dirt-bike scene that is both pastime and passion on the streets of Baltimore. During one eventful summer, Mouse steers his way through two father figures, a first girlfriend, the pull of illegal choices and the thrill of stunt-riding.
