Director Kathy Herndl has done an excellent job of conveying the heavy emotional content of this story along with the exhilarating skateboarding competitions and Asher's unique abilities. Her camera has captured Asher's winning qualities as well as the heft of his obligations. Watching such a little boy (strapped into a rear child-safety seat) listen to his dad's appeal for excellence is sometimes heartbreaking. But, on other occasions, Asher's joy and love of the sport, along with his grit and talent, keep his real uniqueness at the forefront of the story. Audiences will root for Asher and his family and most likely will still have questions about what it takes for Asher to have achieved what he has at a tender age.
