Documentarian Brian Gillogly tells the story of how this 15 year old girl from Brentwood almost inadvertently opened the door for women into a previously male domain, and became surfing's first feminist, inspiring future champions like Layne Beachley, who was known exclusively as Gidget until she became a household name in her own right. Gidget truly embodies the title of her father's first book "Gidget - A Little Girl With Big Dreams".
