After losing their first race in 51 years, it’s a long night for Westdale’s community rowing team. Team captain Mark is missing, first seat Howie is going through a quiet mental breakdown and no one is coming to their charity fundraiser. Filled with party games, pyromania and encounters with emerging psychopaths, Rowing is a fast paced, strangely violent, coming of age story about what it means to be a winner in a small town and the monsters we become when we fail.
