What James Gorman says

The story of the 1936 U.S. Olympic rowing team competing in the Berlin Olympics. One should never underestimate what the determined amateur can do when armed with a professional attitude.

What Howard Schultz says

An unlikely story set in the Pacific Northwest of a group of gritty, up-by-the-bootstraps young men pitted against the most elite and privileged athletes the world could throw at them. The fact that we already know they won the gold doesn’t make the story any less riveting or their actions any less heroic.
