Plot Synopsis

Three generations of the Yosts live in Imperial Beach, California, the last great surf-break before Tijuana. The Yosts were once surfing royalty, but they are now just society's misfits. Shaun, the 13-year-old son of Butchie, has surfing skills that rival those of his addict-derelict father and his now-ascetically-withdrawn grandfather Mitch, both of whom defined the sport in their heydays. His grandmother Cissy is looking out for his commercial and athletic success as a way to compensate for the frustrations and failures of her life with her husband and son. One day a mysterious stranger named John steps into their world and things begin to happen to the Yosts that test the boundaries of past and present, the mundane and the miraculous, the natural world and what lies beyond it.
