This story captures the detail, the beauty and poignant conflicts that disorientate Alice. She is searching but she doesn’t understand what she is searching for, so she questions it all, and frustrates everyone around her.

Her determination to find meaning on an ocean wave, turns into an adventure that is both illuminating and disturbing.

She rides the inner and outer storms of each new experience – sailing, cycling, backpacking – and falls into an encounter with life that is mystical and rugged.

Meet Alice on this journey through the wind and land and wide seascapes, where the lens of fantasy and intense desire builds to a climax of courageous confusion.
