Arrested for skateboarding at three o'clock in the morning at the Venice Beach Skate Park, Kalifornia Blu's life takes an unexpected turn when her rock star absent mom doesn't show up at her sentencing hearing. To avoid a trip to Juvenile Hall, she tracks down her dadβwhom she hasn't seen since she was eight. The sentencing judge thinks a bit of discipline will be good for Kalifornia and transfers her to a Police Academy Magnet High School, where the students wear LAPD uniforms, learn police drills and practice forensics. And, sheβs forced to live with her ex-skateboarding, ex-guitar playing, ex-dad Zachary, in his run-down Venice loft with a 6 pm to 6 am curfew. Itβs not an easy sentence for a girl who has grown up touring with her mom, living in five-star hotels all over the world. Curfew is tough, but Kal is tenacious. When she discovers her cop school partner, Jade, is being threatened by her ganglord cousin, Kal skitches (skateboard hitches) a Range Rover through the Venice canals to save her. She rescues a young girl from a gnarly living situation with Jade's help. It's a rough world she's thrown into, with some dangerous people... and a few new friendships, discovered in the most unlikely places.
