The primary subjects of this engrossing, tautly edited documentary are two middle-aged men competing in the Atlantic Rowing Challenge, a grueling 3,000-mile race from the Canary Islands to Barbados; they're the only Americans and the oldest to participate. First-time director Luke Wolbach captures the human drama of the race, noting the nearly obsessive determination of the rowers (among them an Englishwoman who insists on finishing after her husband bails out and a pair from New Zealand who win in near-record time). Virtually all of them endure a laundry list of physical pains and discomforts, as well as the growing claustrophobia of being confined to a small craft. 88 min.
