Aamion Goodwin was barehanding prawns out of a clear creek in Fiji before he could talk. His vagabond dad made home not in one place, but on a seasonal passage to outposts with surf swells. Now a father himself, Aamion is passing knowledge, and a unique lifestyle, on to his own son. Given is the simple yet powerfully contemplative story of this family legacy come full circle. Telling the tale in a new way, through the visceral experience of a six-year-old, the film follows legendary surfers Aamion and Daize Goodwin as they and their two young children set out to fulfill a calling that spans generations.
