Storyline

Bethany Hamilton, a 13-year-old girl destined for a successful surfing career, lost her arm to a 14-foot tiger shark on Oct. 31, 2003. The attack didn't cause this determined Soul Surfer to give up. Instead, it compelled her to discover her purpose in life as she overcame the loss of her arm and got back on the board just three weeks later. Heart of a Soul Surfer digs deep into the heart of Bethany's abiding faith in God, and tackles difficult questions such as 'Why does God allow bad things to happen in our lives?' It features exclusive surf & family footage of Bethany before & after the attack, including Bethany's first attempts at surfing with one arm, as well as her winning the 2005 NSSA National Surfing Championship just 19 months later. Bethany's story has been told by many different people around the world, but this is the first time she and her family have been able to share it from their heart and perspective. This is a powerful, true story that you won't want to miss! Written by Anonymous
