Ben, a young disabled boy, loves the ocean. One afternoon, when he witnesses the birth of a seal, the boy’s bond with the sea grows even deeper. Season after season, Ben watches the young pup do many of the same things he loves to do: swim, fish, bask in the sun--and surf! Ben and the seal glide with the swells, watching for good waves together. But danger looms, and soon Ben will have to rely on his ocean friend not only for companionship but for his very survival.
