Synopsis

Skatopia: 88 Acres of Anarchy takes you inside a hillbilly skateboarder "commune" in Appalachia where anything goes. The self-declared cult-leader of Skatopia converts punk skaters into volunteer labor, battles bill collectors, does a stint in jail and raises his own family amidst the chaos.
