An ex-con pot-grower, full-blooded Yurok, and big-wave surfer, Hobart Hawkins, tries to go straight after prison. While climbing giant redwoods, he falls for his biology professor, Faith Bartlett. But Faith wants to save 800-acres of old-growth forest, and her NGO needs cash--lots of cash. Hobart, blinded by love, decides to grow a last, illicit crop to avoid a clear-cut--and conquer a heart.
