This film is based off of the true story of how Bethany Hamilton dealt with loosing her arm in a shark attack when she was 13.
It's beautiful to see someone who has lost something and yet has not lost their spirit, for she knows she is not this body. As you see in the movie through her love of God. Her faith and determination motivated her to get back out in the water and surf again.
This film is amazingly inspirational as you watch someone over come their fears through persistent passion. It is a great film to gain the feeling of Never Give Up from the heart and not from the ego.
Feel for yourself at itunes or other movie rental outlets :)
I also recommend watching this interview or any others with Bethany and the actress who portrayed her, AnnaSophia Robb.
