The Story

Mitch Yost is an aging surf legend, forced to retire after a knee injury, who now runs a surf shop in Imperial Beach and broods over his failure. His son, Butchie, was also a huge star in the family business -- but is now a bitter heroin addict, living in a run-down hotel. Butchie's surfing prodigy son, Shaun, lives with Mitch and his wife, Cissy.

Into the lives of this dysfunctional family comes John Monad, a mysterious young man with a habit of repeating what other people say. Immediately, strange things start happening -- a dead parrot comes back to life, Butchie doesn't suffer withdrawal symptoms, and Mitch starts to spontaneously levitate.

Slowly, other people around the Yosts are drawn into the strange happenings -- a sleazy surfing promoter, a starstruck young filmmaker, an eccentric lottery winner, a Vietnam vet.

The new series, created by Deadwood producer David Milch and surf noir novelist Kem Nunn, examines the connections that tie people together, and shows what happens to damaged people when a force of healing comes into their lives.
