This spectacular science-fiction adventure takes place on blazing skates. In a future in which most water has disappeared from the Earth, we find a group of children, mostly teenagers, who are living at an orphanage, run by the despotic rulers of the new Earth. The group plays a hockey-based game on roller skates and is quite good -- it has given them a unity that transcends the attempts to bring them to heel by the government. Finding an orb of special power, they find it has unusual effects on them. They escape from the orphanage (on skates) and try to cross the wasteland looking for a place they can live free as the stormtroopers search for them and the orb.
Editor's Note
A futuristic sci-fi adventure film about a group of roller-skating orphans who try to save a mystical alien from destruction, while rebelling against the evil power that rules their arid planet. Features special effects by Oscar-winner Richard Edlund.
