Life hasn't been easy for 17-year-old Dez Truss (DeRon Horton). As the sole provider for his younger sister, Dez turned to a life of crime to make ends meet. When he's caught boosting cars for an auto-theft ring, he's given one last chance to set his life straight. Enter Rick Radden (Kevin Dillon), a former champion race car driver and owner of a floundering off-road truck racing team. Rick agrees to house and supervise Dez in exchange for manual labor. Using the skills he honed growing up in his dad's auto shop, Dez quickly graduates from shop boy to vital member of Rick's team. When Rick gives his young apprentice a chance to go pro and follow his dreams of racing, the inexperienced teen finds himself competing against legends like Carl Renezeder. Will Dez be up to task? And will his past mistakes catch up to him, threatening all Dez and Rick have worked for?

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Dirt tells the story of a young thief who tries to make a better life for himself and his little sister after the intervention of a kind police officer, a program designed to assist delinquent teens, and an auto-racing team. It's centered in the world of off-road racing competitions at various motor speedways, so expect plenty of car action, including several crashes -- none of which result in serious injury or death. Other jeopardy includes threats and menace from a gang of car thieves, with a fight, vandalism, and fire. Some swearing and insults are heard: "s--t," "ass," "damn," "crap," and one racial slur, "black pr--k." The film is male-centered, with some of the female raceway attendants in skimpy costumes. That's balanced by one strong woman in a parental role. Characters drink beer; a man appears drunk in one scene. Product placement, both intentional and incidental, is continuous: "Rockstar Energy Drink" and/or "Lucas Oil" logos are on camera in almost every scene. The film is ethnically diverse.
