EN - All We Ever Wanted Was Everything portrays a group of young skateboarders growing up in a Flemish suburb. The story unfolds one image at a time, almost like a cinematographic photo book. We meet different people in their daily routines: riding around on their skateboards, waiting, hanging out, daydreaming...  They fantasise about going away, but don’t know where to go. The images on their TV screens serve as a gateway, just like the posters on their bedroom walls.

The film is a personal retrospect on youth told through moments with friends, accidental encounters, places, trivial moments, restagings of memories...
