"Heroes of Dirt" is an inspiring story about a self-focused BMX dirt rider who aspires to become the next stunt champion and is forced to mentor a troubled teen. The film follows BMX dirt jumper Phin Cooper (starring BMX rider Joel Moody) who wants nothing in life but to attain fame in his sport and get paid doing it. After missing out on a competition when he lands in jail for unpaid citations, he receives a court-order for community service and reluctantly mentors one of the toughest boys, Blue Espinosa (Will Martinez). As Phin leads the troubled teen on exciting adventures of riding dirt trails, big jumps and cityscapes, Blue becomes more than an obligation -- an unlikely friend whose secret world of drug trafficking threatens Phin's ultimate dream.
