Storyline

Madison, Indiana, 1971. The Ohio river port is in full economic decline, its last pride and obsession being its uniquely town-owned power boat, although the raggedy old donation from a millionaire decades ago never comes close to a win. With his doted son Mike as most devoted fan, air-conditioner repairman Jim McCormick, who had to stop piloting it after a near-fatal accident, devotes all his 'spare' time to it, turning down professional opportunities as that would mean moving, as his wife suggests. Things climax when he realizes the town will either be scrapped from the national racing circuit or host the Gold Cup itself, requiring $50,000 fund raising. Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

[first lines]
Adult Mike McCormick: [narrating] Why is it that everything important that happens to you when you're a kid, happens during the summer? In the summer of 1971 I was ten years old, and the only thing I looked forward to more than the last day of school, was the first day of practice of the hydroplane racing season. You could say Madison kids were born into racing, the same way some folks were born into the oil business or farming.

A great movie
15 February 2002 | by (Evansville Indiana) – See all my reviews

The Bindley Brothers did a great job in creating this movie I can not wait for the movie to be released. I have seen the movie at the 2001 Heartland Film Fest. It was an unforgettable evening. Those in attendance included, Jim Caviezel, Jake Lloyd, The McCormick Family (Bonnie & Michael McCormick). I feel that the movie is a wonderful must see. I think Jim McCormick would be proud.
