A troubled teenager from a crime-ridden barrio of Lima, Peru, struggles against the odds to realise his dream of becoming a professional surfer and lift his family out of poverty. Taken under the wing of a former world champion, he flourishes. But barrio life proves hard to escape and he is caught up in a drive-by shooting.
