This is a beautiful, peaceful movie which speaks to the heart. I'm surprised it has gone unnoticed and the ratings do it absolutely no justice. Beautiful scenery, great soundtrack, and a simple yet engaging story about a cute, quiet girl from New York who learns to see life from a new perspective as she uncovers her families past.
Story: A young girl Nikki who never leaves her room, constantly reading books and shutting herself off from the outside world, is sent to her Grandmother for the summer, who owns a surf shop in California. As she discovers more about the families past, and embarks on a road trip to Mexico, things start to change.
The character development seems to move too fast at the start, but everything falls perfectly into place as the movie continues.
Warning: not a typical movie about blonde babes and surfing.
