Two cousins who live on opposite coasts in the U.S.–both surfers and both unaware of the other’s existence–discover they are descendants of An Ri, the last King of the Blasket Islands. A collection of rocky islands off the western-most point of Ireland, the Blaskets, surrounded by treacherous ocean, are home to a community of people whose culture was until recently untouched by outside influence. Exploring themes of family, emigration, and the value of tradition and culture, the film follows the cousins as they meet for the first time in Ireland on a quest to explore their shared heritage, to learn what has been passed down to them from those who came before, and to surf the waters of their ancestors. ~AB
