The year is 1985. Rad Miracle is a shy 13-year-old white kid who's obsessed with two things: ping pong and hip hop. During his family's annual summer vacation to Ocean City, Maryland, Rad makes a new best friend, experiences his first real crush, becomes the target of rich, racist local bullies, and finds an unexpected mentor in his outcast next-door neighbor. Ping Pong Summer is about that time in your life when you're treated like an alien by everyone around you, even though you know deep down you're as funky fresh as it gets.

Rating: 10/10

I was totally moved by this film. I felt that I was placed in the 1980's I related to all the actors. I was filled with total emotions. It was so refreshing to see a movie that totally moved me. It was true entertainment! I know I could bring my grand-children to it. Congrads to the cast and crew! Truly a remarkable film. We saw the film in Sundance. My wife and I went to the premier it was such a great experience, one on won't forget. We were also invited to the party in the evening. To personally meet with Mike Tully and the young talent is an experience i won't forget. To play Ping pong with them was so great. Of course I am not as good as they are but I gave it my all. This film made me laugh and cry. It was such an experience. I hope all of you will try and see this film when it is out at the theaters..
