SYNOPSIS: At the young age of ten, DUSTIN “DUSTY” hoped to experience one of the greatest thrills of his life when his dad was to complete for bull riding World Champion title. But Dustin’s life would change forever when his dad was thrown from the bull and severely injured.

Now at 26, running from ranch life, Dustin has grown into an athletic, handsome man living in Northern California and participating in some of the most dangerous activities he possibly could ever do – anything but bull riding. He surfs the deadliest waves; he races down steep streets in San Francisco on a long-board; he lives for skydiving and skimming the earth in a squirrel suit. No guts, no glory no fear. As a stunt man, he and his team face down all offers.

When his mother dies he is confronted with the thing he’s avoided for sixteen years, returning home to face his father, brother and town legacy.

While at home he establishes a friendship with a girl from his past. Mentored by a family friend and wise cowboy, he faces up to his fears and embraces the thing he’s been running from all these years, his destiny.
