Description

Two young oarsmen are trained as a coxless pair by a mysterious German coach in the Golden Summer of pre-war Amsterdam.

Through the pressure and rapture of physical exertion, teamwork and victory, Anton the shy outsider and calmly self-confident David forge an intense relationship.

But on the wintery eve of Holland's liberation, Anton stands on the bank of his beloved river and mourns a lost world.

David has disappeared during the Nazi occupation and the boathouse is now derelict and deserted.
