Tyler is a popular high-school wrestler with talent, but also wants to spend time with his friends at parties. His father, however, tells him that he needs to work ten times as hard as his peers if he’s to make it professionally. Keen to make him proud, Tyler pushes himself to his physical limit and suffers a serious injury yet opts to keep it a secret, instead stealing his father’s painkillers to cope. Tyler feels burdened further still when he receives the news that his girlfriend, Alexis, is pregnant, leaving the couple with a huge decision to make about their future together. Feeling overwhelmed, Tyler’s life begins to spiral out of control until a shattering incident has repercussions for everyone around him. ‘Waves’ is an exhilarating, lyrical coming-of-age drama, with a pulsating score, about the moments which define our lives.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
