Description

Expected to be in attendance: Director Mark Christopher Covino

Two cousins on opposite sides of America, both surfers and both unaware of the other's existence, discover they are both descendants of An Rí, the last king of the Blasket Islands—a collection of rocky islands off the westernmost point of Ireland. The islands are surrounded by treacherous ocean and were once home to a community of people whose culture was untouched by outside influence.

The cousins meet for the first time in Ireland on a quest to explore their shared heritage, learn the history that is their birthright, and surf the waters of their ancestors. Their journey is a story of family, immigration, and value of tradition and culture.
