At the most beautiful beach resort on the east coast, Sara Baxter (Ally Walker) is a single mother of two boys that are her life and joy. She divorced her husband and did everything possible to keep her kids from their abusive father. Her oldest son, Seth Baxter (Zac Efron), graduated from college and got a job in the mayor’s office. He became the stud in the office around all the older women and men in the office. Her youngest son, Cody Baxter (Jake T. Austin), is a senior in high school and a somewhat popular kid but only has two good friends that he does almost everything. Growing up, Cody needed something to relieve some of his stress and he took up the hobby of surfing and became quite good – with trophies and pictures to show for it.
Now in North Point…
Cody starts his last year of high school and to make it to graduation and to leave the resort and start a new life for himself. Cody tries to hang in there throughout the year and his friends and family are his only support.

North Point (obviously) has been a story that has been with me for a couple of months and I have updated the story a little and decided to post on here. I am currently involved with a separate project at this time and this is currently just for feedback. Depending on what kind of feedback that I get I will be pushing forward on this in my spare time to at least write the first two episodes.
