Tobi (Robert Stadlober) and Achim (Kostja Ullmann) have been best friends for years. As cox and oarsman of a successful rowing team, they have won several cups in the past and are now looking forward to going on summer camp and taking part in the rowing competition.

As training resumes the tension builds as the assorted team mates find themselves dealing with their various needs and confusions. The pressure rises and then erupts as a storm breaks the night before the big race...
