Thirteen year old Bethany Hamilton loves to surf; she comes from a family of surfers, so there is nothing more she likes doing then catching some waves, in Hawaii, where she lives. When not surfing, she likes hanging out with her friends and flirting with guys, like any other teen her age.
Bethany also participates in surfing competitions, frequently winning the grand prize every time. Everyone agrees that she has a bright future in surfing ahead of her. But one day, when out surfing with her friend, Bethany falls victim to a shark attack; she is rushed to the hospital and has to have her arm amputated, leaving her surfing career in jeopardy.
Bethany slowly adjusts to life with one arm and quickly gets back in the water but it's difficult to surf one handed. When she starts receiving fan letters, from other amputees taking inspiration from Bethany's attitude to try out for different sports, Bethany realises that she must overcome the odds in order to become a champion again.
