The independent feature film MADISON is a father/son action/drama based on the inspiring true story of the tiny, dying town of Madison, Indiana and its legendary, come-from-behind win in the 1971 race for the Gold Cup of hydroplane boat racing. In addition ot the thrills of 180 mph flat-bottomed boat racing, the picture captures the spirit of small town America and its turbulent struggle to transition from the 60s to the 70s.
In 1971, Jim McCormick (James Caviezel) has left the dangers of hydroplane flat racing behind in favor of a wife, a family and a job as the town's air conditioner repairman. But deep inside the dream of piloting the community-owned Miss Madison to victory in the Gold Cup, the sport's most celebrated race, lives on. Several years old and in constant disrepair, the boat has become the laughing stock of hydroplane racing and the town has no money to fix it. Madison's competitors on the circuit by comparison have rich corporate sponsorships, top-of-the-line equipment, round-the-clock maintenance and well paid crews.
When Madison, on a fluke, is offered the chance to host the prestigious Gold Cup championship, it's too much for McCormick to resist...
