A story of cultural identity and rock climbing exploration as we follow one of Australia’s top rock climbers – 14 year old Angie Scarth-Johnson – on an adventure to a remote and rugged island in the South Pacific.
After smashing climbing records around the world, Angie is now looking for her next challenge. She will journey to the Pacific island of ‘Eua with her family and friend Lee Cossey to explore her own ancestry, and search for a classic line on the wild frontier of rock climbing development.
PACIFIC LINES is an inspiring, heartfelt and funny documentary about one of the most human subjects – identity. By exploring her family’s past, she can forge her own path ahead.
