This true story about nine working-class boys who row their hearts out at the 1936 Berlin Olympics is page-turning at its best.  From the Depression to Adolf Hitler, each boy's personal journey to triumph comes alive. Reminiscent of Seabiscuit and Unbroken, hope, courage and persistence conquer all.
