Director: Miguel Cano | Producer: Miguel Cano
Focus Years: 2014 | Country: Spain
In the Indonesian Island of Sumbawa, the community of Hu'u has a very special reality; poverty, taught living and working conditions and lack of education live together around Lakey Peak. It's one of the best beach destinations to practice the activity that keeps the head of locals free of problems and worries: surfing. 40 abandoned kids at the beach find in surfing a way to forget their troubles, connect with the rest of kids and dream about becoming a surfing champion. Carlos is a Spanish lawyer who left his job, family, friends and everything behind to move to Lakey Peak. He started his own humanitarian organisation and fulfils the whole community with the fuel of dreams: hope.
