All three share a belief in the power of sport, especially surfing, as a way to break down barriers and connect with others. The film shows how these young women are encouraging more people to join them, bridging cultural and gender divides in a remote part of Iran. Together they are planting the seed for new opportunities and making history, becoming the first women to surf in Iran. Winner: Audience Award. San Diego Surf Film Festival
