Breathtaking and inspiring
21 January 2018 | by rogerraddSee all my reviews

I'm neither a surfer nor a fan of surf movies, but I found this short adventure film a brilliant little gem. Wonderfully shot, passionately edited and genuinely expressed. Say what you will about their sanity - a wonderful depiction of a truly human journey.
