About The Film

Unstoppable takes the viewer on an incredible journey as a girl becomes a woman and a resilient athlete rises to the top her game against all odds, becoming one of the leading professional surfers in the world. From chasing her toddler, to chasing the biggest waves, Bethany is continuously rewriting the rules by living an Unstoppable life, and brings new meaning to the phrase “surfs like a girl.”

I loved Soul Surfer, but this is the real me.

Bethany Hamilton

Filmmaker Aaron Lieber weaves intimate observational footage of Hamilton and her family, archival footage of the surfer as a young woman, and gorgeous ocean wave panoramas into a heroic tale of bravery, perseverance, athleticism, and hope.

Born into a family of surfers in Kauai, Bethany Hamilton began surfing competitively at eight years old. In 2003, at age 13, she was out surfing when she was attacked by a 15-foot tiger shark, a run-in that cost her her left arm. But not only did she survive the attack—she was back on the competitive circuit just a year later. More than a decade later, Hamilton undertakes the greatest challenges of her life.

Bethany Hamilton

Bethany Hamilton is an American professional surfer who began her surfing career at age 11. By age 13, she was an accomplished surfer and well-respected in the surfing world. She came to national attention after her left arm was bitten off by a tiger shark on October 31, 2003. She has since made a full recovery and has returned to surfing. MTV Books published Hamilton’s Book, ‘Soul Surfer’ from which the major motion picture is based. Hamilton is a Hawaii native and currently resides there with her husband and two sons, and she continues to touch and inspire lives globally as a professional surfer, author, and motivational speaker. She currently has her own blog on helping others become unstoppable.
