Young fisherman Fettah has befriended many of the European windsurfers that visit his tiny village on the Moroccan Atlantic coast every summer. He has eagerly adopted their way of life and with the help of old equipment the tourists left behind has become an amazing windsurfer himself. When his European friends leave, they leave behind an unbearable emptiness and Fettah finds himself dreaming of a life far away. One summer, he falls in love with Alexandra, a Dutch girlfriend of one of the tourists. He knows she is out of reach, yet when she leaves something is broken beyond repair. However the human spirit, often shines most brightly in its darkest hour, and the loss of Alexandra finally gives Fettah the strength to break free. He packs his backpack, takes his windsurf board and sets off on an epic journey along the Atlantic coast towards Europe. As the wind carries him north, past Casablanca and out onto the wild and merciless open ocean, he finds that the pursuit of dreams does not come without sacrifice.
