David Chappellet is a mean-spirited skier, who profits from another skier's injury to gain a spot on the American Olympic team. His roommate sums up his goals when he observes of David, "He's not for the team, and he never will be"; but precisely who the David is that David is so fiendishly striving for we're never to learn. He develops a short-lived relationship with Carole Stahl, a glamorous European woman even more capricious than himself. Chappellet's identity trouble are exacerbated by the fact that he is an "Event" as well as a personality; and more astute minds than his own have difficulty where the one leaves off and the other takes over. Director Michael Ritchie's ("The Candidate") feature film debut. —alfiehitchieskiingbased on novelwomanizersmall townrestaurant38 morePlot summaryPlot synopsisTaglinesHow fast must a man go to get from where he's at?GenresDramaSportCertificateMParents guide
