Synopsis: Brothers Ed and Jak Smith—15 and 21 years old—are surfers from South East Cornwall, UK. Surfing is the central point of their lives; but their story is more than a quest for perfect waves—it is also about family, camaraderie, a deep-rooted connection to place and a sense of inspiration and desire to protect the ocean they love.
Relative is a self produced and funded film featuring Ed and Jak Smith. The film was made on almost no budget, just passion and innovation.
