Learning to Breathe by Rocky Romano:
The film explores the troubled evolution of professional surfing legend Anthony Ruffo. Ruffo’s legendary surfing ability and charismatic personality made him a role model in the Santa Cruz surfing community, and when he fell into a spiraling addiction and criminality, he took a portion of the surfing world with him. Facing a failing reputation and 5 years in state prison, Ruffo must finally understand the impact he has made on his community. He strives to repair his broken life, but there are no guarantees that the court will sympathize with Ruffo’s efforts.
