Doug Pray directs this documentary about 85-year-old surfer, health advocate and sex guru Dorian 'Doc' Paskowitz. Along with his Mexican wife Juliette, Doc brought up his nine children - eight brothers and a sister - in a small camper van on the beaches of Southern California, Hawaii, Mexico and Israel. Entirely home-schooled, the children were brought up on the strict regime of healthy eating and daily surfing espoused by their idealistic and demanding father. This film explores the effect their unconventional upbringing has had on them, and looks at the consequences of choosing a life far from the beaten track.
