Synopsis
Revolves around Jesse, a 17-year-old surfer who treads the line between success and self-destruction. Jesse lives in the shadow of his older brother Victor's failure to become surfing's Next Big Thing. Even when he's in his natural habitat of magnificent surf breaks, his blue collar future is brought home by the coal barges that constantly line his horizon. Jesse has the natural skills to surf his way out of this reality and onto the international circuit but can he overcome his equally natural ability to sabotage himself? A momentous weekend away with his friends that includes first love and tragedy leads him to discover what's really important.
