The gripping true story of the Oxford University Boat Race mutiny of 1987.
Known simply as "The Boat Race" the annual rowing contest between Oxford and Cambridge Universities is watched by millions of people around the world and is one of the greatest endurance tests in all of sport.
But in 1987 it became a contest not between two ancient universities, but between 'arrogant' Americans and 'antiquated' Brits. Oxford, stung by a humiliating defeat in the '86 race, enlisted five top Americans to turn the tide against Cambridge. True Blue tells the story of the ensuing battle over training and selection, and the 'mutiny' that shocked the world. A stunning re-enactment of the race itself, where Coach Topolski's young and inexperienced crew won a valiant victory against all the odds, is the climax to this Chariots of Fire on water.
