Careen down an icy, steep mountain face with snowboarders; twirl above the clouds with skysurfers; climb a thirty-story tall Giant Sequoia and emerge from under the spray of one of California’s biggest, surfable waves. This film explores the vast beauty, landscapes, and creative spirit that make this state and its people unique. Audiences are introduced to such adventuresome individuals as Steve Sillett, a biologist studying life in the canopies of California’s giant redwood trees; Sue Campbell, an otter aquarist whose job is to help introduce orphaned sea otter pups back into the wild; skydivers Troy Hartman and Joe Jennings; and two ironworkers who perform the upkeep on the Golden Gate Bridge.
