The documentary feature, A Most Beautiful Thing, chronicles the first African American high school rowing team in America.

Narrated and executive produced by Common, a Grammy, Oscar and Emmy award-winning artist, executive produced by NBA Stars Grant Hill and Dwyane Wade along with Grammy-winning producer 9th Wonder and directed by award-winning filmmaker Mary Mazzio.
