Life is full of triumph and heartache, death, and yes, sometimes destruction. A year ago, Hurricane Sandy completely devastated the beach communities along the Northeastern seaboard. Timmy Brennan is a New York iron worker and part of the SUP tribe. He uses standup paddling as an escape from the grit and grind of the city nine-to-five. But his world, and those of his neighbors and family, were torn apart by the utter ferocity that was Sandy. Directors David Darg and Bryn Mooser follow Brennan in this short, elegant look back at loss and recovery a year later. After watching, even the most hardened of souls would have a hard time denying the utter power of water to help in any healing process.
