Wheels is a coming-of-age story about Max, a 19-year-old from Brooklyn who wants to be a well-known DJ. Until now, he has been the sole provider for his sick grandmother—Djing parties for Oscar, a neighborhood shark—but things shift when Max’s brother Terry returns home after three years in prison, forcing Max to reconcile their relationship. Max gets close to Liza, the manager of a dance studio, who inspires him with her work ethic and determination. He soon finds himself at a crossroads between family obligation, the streets, and pursuing his dream.
