Life for Anne Marie (Kate Bosworth) has been one long Pipe dream.
She’s about to make that dream a reality if she can keep from drowning in her own fear.
As the clock ticks down to the Pipe Masters surf competition on the North Shore of Oahu, more is at stake for Anne Marie than the pressure of competing in one of the world’s most dangerous, aggressive and male-dominated sports. She must first win a dreaded contest within.
Sharing a beach shack with her best friends Eden (Michelle Rodriguez) and Lena (Sanoe Lake) and rebellious younger sister Penny (Mika Boorem), Anne Marie lives for the adrenaline-charged surf scene, rising before dawn every day to charge the Pipeline’s deadly waves. The friends eke out a living as maids in a luxury resort hotel. The humble job pays the bills and lets them keep their focus on the water.
But things change when a pro football team with slovenly habits and fat wallets checks in. Like it or not, Anne Marie starts losing her balance – and finding it – as she falls for quarterback Matt Tollman (Matthew Davis). Suddenly there are options: trophy wife or trophy winner?
