American Flyers

Kevin Costner and David Grant play brothers struggling to win the Hell of the West, a world class cycling competition - and regain the respect and affection they once shared. While training and racing together, each fears the congenital ailment that struck down their father could suddenly strike one of them. Written by Steve Tesich ("Breaking Away").
