Movie Synopsis
On a 1930s beach, 12-year-old Geoff dreams of romantic adventures. But when he meets Firpo, he discovers the difference between fantasy and reality.  Geoff Crome believes in miracles. He sees them every day on the beach where he lives in this last perfect summer of his childhood.

Despite his father's warnings, Geoff becomes friends with Firpo - a strange, skinny, magical character with a burning ambition to win the Olympic Games. When Firpo accepts an impossible challenge to run a race on the beach, Geoff tries everything to help him win - body building, weights, diet, even prayer. But Firpo scorns them all, convinced he will win with a miracle all his own. Geoff so much wants to believe in Firpo's miracle that he sets himself against his whole world - his family, his community and finally, against the innocent dreams of his childhood.
