A close-up view of crew racing from the seat that counts the most--the place of the man at the oars. Filmed at St. Catharines, Ontario, on the occasion of a North American rowing competition, this film follows a University of British Columbia team through practice, trials and competition, and to the telling race when well-schooled movement, hard rhythm and finely tuned muscles sweep the light shells ever faster down the course to the finish line.
