Summary
The powerful and uplifting story of how two men from very different backgrounds triumphed against the odds, capturing Olympic Gold and embodying the battling spirit of the 1948 London games. The fact that the games took place at all was astonishing in itself, as Britain was still struggling with the damaging after effects of war. The film follows the compelling journey to the Olympic final of an unlikely pairing of competitors: boatbuilder's son Bert Bushnell and Eton and Oxford-educated Richard 'Dickie' Burnell. Thrown together as double sculling partners just six weeks before the games, they had to confront and overcome vast differences in their personal and professional lives, as well as push themselves to their physical and emotional limits
