Pro snowboarder Jess Kimura has an irrational fear of water. In a finely crafted juxtaposition of snow and surf, director Ben Knight delicately weaves a tale of love, loss, adrenaline and conquering fear through the lens of this loose cannon turned gentle spirit. Growing up with a rebel mentality, chastised as a kid for pushing boundaries, Kimura rose to the top, crushing stereotypes for female athletes and accruing accolades and awards along the way. When disaster strikes, Kimura begins re-evaluating the lens through which she looks at life. Trading in the dangerous binary of black and white, Kimura now chooses to view life as a constant wave.
