In this beautiful short film, visionary director Matt Rainwaters creates an honest and thoughtful portrait of a man who has pursued his dream to the end. In sacrificing modern conveniences and relationships, we unflinchingly get a glimpse into the often unglamorous reality of what abandoning everything for a dream looks like: sleeping in parking lots, dreary mornings, seemingly endless solitude. But is all of this worth it? That’s the unvoiced question lingering just within earshot as we watch professional surfer Mick Rogers through the mundanity of his day to day, and how the love of surfing over anything else informs how he lives his life. Or does it?
