Storyline

High School senior Luke Harris (Justin Schwan) dreams of just one thing... pro surfing. With his best friend Casey (Angel Cruz) at his side, they have two goals: surf and party! But Luke's Mom (Raquel Gardner) and especially Dad (Greg Carlson) have other ideas: pick a college and grow up! When Luke learns that a spot is opening up on the local surf team, he see's his big chance to prove to his parents that he can make it as a surfer and avoid being shipped off to school. Only two things stand in Luke's way: new-surfer-in-town Matt (Andy Shephard) who has his own eyes set on the surf team opening, and his Dad, who insists he give up his surfing dreams and get an education. When a devastating tragedy strikes, Luke is forced to take a hard look at his life and with the help of beautiful "church-girl" Emily (Kelsey Sanders) and his Youth Pastor (Danny Smith), he learns that there's much more to life than riding waves.

God's infinite plan
20 November 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

For those who believe that all the events of our lives is part of an infinite design Cutback will certainly provide reasons for that belief. With a cast of unknowns this is a decent Christian film.

Our protagonist is Justin Schwann who has surfing and girls on his mind as a lot of California kids do. He seems somewhat aimless and that concerns his parents Greg Carlson and Raquel Gardner. It's Gardner who has the religion thing and she pushes Schwann into the church's local youth ministry.

With one bad tragedy in his future, Schwann's whole life of course is changed and even said tragedy has a place in the universal scheme of things. In any event church youth group seems a proper fit for him and it works out for all concerned.

Given that this is a Christian film it will have certain parameters it has to follow. Follow them Cutback does.

It's a nice production, but I think in the secular world it will meet with a lot of scoffing.
