“Heart of Champions” stars Michael Shannon, Alexander Ludwig, Charles Melton, Alex MacNicoll and Ash Santos with Lilly Krug and David James Elliott.

During their last year at an Ivy League college in 1999, some friends' lives are changed forever when an Army vet takes over as coach of their dysfunctional rowing team.

After finishing last in the national championship, a college rowing team descends into turmoil and constant infighting between team leaders Alex (Alexander Ludwig), Chris (Charles Melton), and John (Alex MacNicoll).

A tough Army veteran, Coach Murphy (Michael Shannon), 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.
