The Synopsis 

After finishing last in the national championship, a college rowing team descends into turmoil and constant infighting between team leaders Alex (Alexander Ludwig, “Vikings”), Chris (Charles Melton, “Riverdale”), and John (Alex MacNicoll, “The Society”).  A tough Army veteran, Coach Murphy (Michael Shannon, “Take Shelter”), arrives at the start of the new season to transform the status quo and unlock their true potential.  Using his experience and unconventional methods to help them overcome petty rivalries and personal challenges, Coach Murphy must inspire these young men to learn what it takes to be a team before they can be champions.
