BIG vs SMALL is an energetic and inspirational documentary that profiles Joana Andrade, Portugal’s first female big wave surfer, known to many as ‘Tiny Fighter’. Fiery, athletic and constantly breaking barriers in her quest to improve as an extreme competitor, Joana seeks help from celebrated freediver, Johanna Nordblad, in order to face her demons and overcome the thunderous waters of Nazaré, Portugal. From the churning tides to the silent ice of Finland, this is a story of two elite females at the top of their game sharing their talents with each other in a journey of self-actualisation.
