Of the Four Amigos who won a rowing bronze at the Mexico Olympics, 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. Sure, there's a bit of bad blood between them and a few old scores to settle, but when it all comes down to it, mates are mates, right?
