THE STORY

A Baltimore boy named Pug idolizes a group of dirt-bike riders who raise havoc on city streets. Lacking any other significant male role models, Pug hopes to join their ranks one day.

Premiering to critical acclaim at the SXSW and Hot Docs Film Festivals, 12 O'CLOCK BOYS provides a compelling and intimate personal story of a young boy and his dangerous, thrilling dream.

A group of dirt bike riders in Baltimore have been called reckless. But to them, riding their bikes provides a sense of escape.

The slow-motion, high-definition shots of grinning bikers leaning back in the sunshine, wheels rampant, all scored to juiced-up beats, are the stuff of his daydreams. The buzz of the motors, cutting through summer heat, almost seems to call to Pug.
