Pai is a film about taking one's own path in learning how to be a good father, and about accepting failure as a natural outcome of personal growth. The film follows Rodrigo Petersen, who defeated the odds to become a professional skateboarder in the US. Rodrigo's mother passed away when he was just a toddler, and his relationship with his father was strained by the trauma they both endured through her loss. Throughout his youth, Rodrigo held much resentment for his father's ways and always imagined he would one day be a completely different father himself. Life will give him this chance, but Rodrigo will also come come to understand the source of his father's actions much more clearly. In the film, Rodrigo explains how this realization changes his perspective, and the relationships he holds with his father and his own son.
