Description At the 1968 Mexico Olympics, an Australian rowing team wins bronze. It's a moment of glory for four young idealists. Best mates, Golden Boys. The four Amigos. Of the four, three are still alive: Jim an investment banker who thinks an AC after his name might legitimise a life of squalid dealing; Dick, a heart surgeon, who can, if he chooses, put in a good word with the Honours Committee; and Stephen, the least successful, grieving the death of his son. They and their wives come together for a two-week holiday in paradise.
