Rated PG by the BBFC


Sport based drama set in the the world of downhill skiing. Director Michael Richie's feature debut centres on David Chappellet (Robert Redford), a top-class skier who gains entry into the American Olympic team at the expense of an injured colleague. Universally disliked by his teammates because of his self-centred, win-at-all-cost approach, he soon disgards any emotional ties that could effect his chances of success. With his mind focussed on the ultimate prize however, Chappellet soon discovers the true meaning of the phrase 'a hollow victory'.
