Plot Summary
Once-promising long-distance runner Michael Andropolis (Michael Douglas) is given one last shot to prove himself when he's allowed a chance to qualify for the U.S. Olympic team. Incapable of competing without somehow sabotaging himself -- either on the field or in real life -- Michael has alienated both his wife, Janet (Susan Anspach), and his training coach (Lawrence Dane). But, knowing that this is his very last shot at greatness, he endeavors to give it everything he can.
