Cox's Bazaar - the world's largest beach near the Rohingya refugee camp Kutupalong is home to Shob, Shuma, and Ayesha. Fearlessly, the Muslim female surfers hurl themselves toward the highest waves. In the midst of poverty, violence, and toxic masculinity, they resolutely pursue their dream of a self-determined life. And with every wave they conquer, they defy family expectations and conventions - until their worst fears come true. Joy and despair densely and emotionally told to the rhythm of the sea. A universal story about inner strength, overcoming fears - and sport that gives hope to rewrite destiny.
