Cap on and camera on: Bagdá skateboards through São Paulo and let’s nobody silence her. Bagdá has short hair, worn sneakers and chains around her neck. Even though it’s not always easy at home, the female* household sticks together. Together they either help their little, alien-fascinated sister to produce a NASA application video or they visit the hairdresser’s shop that is run by friends from the LGBTQI* community. As the main character, also the audience glides through the movie. Confident, fresh and with a lot of momentum the problematic sides of the cis-male dominated skateboarding scene are fought. At the end it’s about empowering solidarity among queers, no matter whether with or without a board.
