The film not only focuses on the sport of rowing, but also the human spirit. It captures the intensive race training moments of UNIST Rowing Team in Taehwa River, the lifeline of Ulsan. Rowing is a true test of physical and mental mettle, as it pushes its athletes to the limits of human capacities. According to the festival officials, the main points to ponder in this documentary are the spirited young men as they test their physical limits through rowing, and their efforts and results being projected through the perspective of balance.
