"Bra Boys" documents the cultural evolution of the inner-Sydney beach-side suburb of Maroubra and the social struggle of its youth--the tattooed and much maligned surf community known as the Bra Boys. Explores their success in professional big wave surfing, their international reputation for hard partying and rough justice, and touches on their running battle with authorities. The film shows their absolute reliance on one another to fit into a society in which they are displaced and, at times, disinterested. Follows how the evolution of Maroubra, coupled with the historical stigma associated with Australia's rebellious surf community, has contributed to their social displacement.
