Scott Eastwood – son of screen legend Clint Eastwood – delivers a breakthrough performance as Ian McCormack, a rebellious young surfer who impulsively decides to leave home and travel the world’s most exotic surf spots. But living in the moment can have its thrills – including a romance with beautiful kindred soul Annabel (Rachel Hendrix of October Baby) – as well as its sacrifices. And following a horrific accident and near-death experience on the island of Mauritius, Ian receives a glimpse into eternity that will change his life forever. Patrick Lyster (“Black Sails”) and Cheryl Ladd (“Charlie’s Angels”) co-star in this inspirational true story about the power of faith, the love of family, and one man’s search for The Perfect Wave.
The film’s talented cast also features award-winning professional surfers, Matt Bromley and Rosy Hodge.
To enhance the film experience, THE PERFECT WAVE has partnered with YouVersion to create a unique devotional, titled Back from the Dead: Kickstart Your Spiritual Future. This 21-day devotional was created with Ian McCormack, inspired by his personal encounter with God. This epic adventure through Scripture will awaken the reader’s spiritual senses and point them toward what Ian McCormack calls “life before death”. Back from the Dead is available free of charge at https://www.bible.com/reading-plans/974-back-from-the-dead-kickstart-your-spiritual-future or on the YouVersion app.
