Forces of nature, health problems, over-critical judges: Brazilian big wave surfer Maya Gabeira has already had to cope with a few setbacks. Today, she is the best big wave surfer in the world. But it was a long road to get there. MAYA AND THE WAVE is an impressive portrait of a sportswoman fighting for recognition in the male-dominated world of big wave surfing - and showing the world that women are capable of anything.
