I started to watch this because I thought it was going to be a surfing movie! Well it is after a fashion. It is a BBC children's television short film.
Basically the main character, a teenage boy, has lost his mum. She was a pro-surfer and the family spent seasons in Australia. Does this have anything to do with the story. It is not clear.
The story deals with how the boy comes to terms with his mum's death in a series of flashbacks or dream sequences and also how the shock of his mum's death brings his aunt out of her shell - she is still grieving 11 years after her husband has died.
The message seems to be "move on and get over it". Maybe from a child's or teenager's viewpoint the story seems a bit stronger.
