Against the Tide
Rating: All Ages
Against The Tide shares the story of the Smith family, who risk it all to pursue a lifelong dream – to live aboard a sailboat and explore Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.
The Smith’s longed for normalcy, but with an Autistic son unable to communicate and prone to violent outbursts, the ocean was the only place they could find peace. Together they sell their home and set sail on the adventure of a lifetime. This unflinching film documents an honest, unapologetic memoir of a journey that changed their lives forever.
