Seeking solace after her mother’s untimely death, Texas med school dropout Nancy (Blake Lively) headed to Mexico to surf a secluded beach that her mom had treasured.

Tidy thriller co-stars Oscar Jaenada, Brett Cullen, Sedona Legge. 86 min.
Orphaned teenager Jesse (Elle Fanning) moved to Los Angeles, certain that her striking beauty would gain her entry into the world of high-end modeling.
