Paranoid Park

It's Saturday night in Portland, Oregon, and Alex (Gabe Nevins) goes to Paranoid Park, a skate park on the wrong side of the tracks. Joining up with another skater they decide to ride the freight train. When a security guard apprehends them Alex unthinkingly hits him with his skateboard and he is killed under the train wheels. Alex's life is typical of teenagers - girlfriends, family (parents divorcing, younger brother), school, writing his diary and skateboarding. In a state of denial, repressed anxiety and guilt after the manslaughter, he is repeatedly interviewed as a suspect by Detective Richard Lu (Dan Lu) who is determined to prove his hunch that Alex committed the crime.
