The 1960s are becoming the 1970s, and three Californian surfer pals are living a carefree, sun-kissed dream. Adulthood and its trials loom, though, not least the ongoing Vietnam War. The friends take very different paths on their way to growing up, each wondering if they will survive to experience the mythical surfing event known as "Big Wednesday". This film can be seen as a companion to American Graffiti, but with surfboards instead of hot-rods and a steelier eye on the tragedies that befall his heroes. An important chronicle of a changing period in American society and its youth.
