ON WATER is based on the aspirational true story of 25-year-old American rowing champion Libby Peters and the crew she coached of inner-city boys who won the Philadelphia City Regatta in 2010. When Libby discovers she has cancer, her dream of representing America at the Beijing Olympics is shattered and she can't get past her anger until she meets 15-year-old Elijah, who wishes he could try the sport she loves so much. As they take on some of the oldest boathouses in America to establish a rowing club for inner-city youth in the heart of Philadelphia's historic Boathouse Row, Elijah and his crew teach Libby what it means to rise above life's injustices and a city rife with division, the joy of embracing hope over fear.
