Two cousins on opposite sides of America - both surfers and both unaware of the other’s existence - discover they are both descendants of An Ri, the last King of the Blasket Islands, a collection of rocky islands off the western-most 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. Touching on themes of family, immigration, and the value of tradition and culture, the cousins meet for the first time in Ireland on a quest to explore their shared heritage, learn what has been passed down to them from those who came before, and to surf the waters of their ancestors. USA, 2016
