This ain’t just your common surf trip, this quest is all about finding if a balance between our daily habits and wilderness still exists. Are we losing all our roots to the profit of a virtual life? With kids multi-tasking as they text each other and update their facebook status regularly, we wonder how far all this will go? Have we reached the end of real life experiences? Has all the knowledge passed on from generation to generation faded away? Has the human being stopped feeling what it is like to be alive? Are plants and animals the only things left on earth who can appreciate their natural surroundings? We'll try to find out to which degree it is affecting different areas of the world and whether or not it’s already too late... We'll travel down the west coast of America starting from Alaska all the way down to Central America. Throughout this quest Montreal based flim maker Marc-André Laurin & his team mate Frédéric Séguin will meet a variety of watermen, artists, and surfers. They want to know if they have found that balance that they are desperately seeking, because for them back in Montreal Canada the only thing keeping one going through there monotone work life is to pray for a hurricane to bring about some good week-end swell in Maine...
