Teenage surfer Bethany Hamilton overcomes the odds and her own fears of returning to the water after losing her left arm in a shark attack.
The real Bethany Hamilton was 13 when she was attacked, but the actress Annasophia Robb who plays her was 16 in the movie.
Love is bigger than any tidal wave or fear.
When Bethany's father shows her all the board sizes she has to try and begins with the larger one, when she is on the beach she is wearing a small bikini bottom. When she goes in the water she is wearing shorts. When she comes out of the water, she is wearing bikini bottoms again.
During the ending credits, videos of the real Bethany Hamilton are shown, many of similar (or possibly the inspiration for) moments in the film.
