Filmed in Jacksonville, VEER! is the story of Jesse Sorensen, a skateboarder who had it all - a lucrative contract, girls, fame and an extravagant lifestyle. Now ten years later, past his prime and his usefulness in this youth-driven culture, Jesse is dropped by his skate team. Broke, he moves in with his elderly grandmother only to discover his 17-year old niece, Samantha, crashing there as well. Ironically, she is following the same slippery slope Jesse once paved, with the hottest new skater in town. After a decade of refusing to grow up, Jesse must confront what he has spent his entire life avoiding - responsibility - and figure out his future once and for all.
