The Inertia

Dean is your average teen. He’s got a crush on Rihanna – “the queen of rap” he calls her. He plays the drums and isn’t shy about showing off his biceps. And in this beautifully-shot short, we learn Dean is also a teen with Down’s syndrome who gets absolutely fired up to splash around in the water. The purity of it all is heartening.

“Yeah, there’s a moment…” explains Dean about riding a wave, “There’s love there. And freedom. Total freedom.”

The film highlights the work of Surfing With Smiles. To learn more you can visit their website here.


Only the best. We promise.
