The people of Beartown live and breathe hockey. And this year, their junior league has a chance of winning the championship and putting Beartown back on the map. Yet the events at a post-semi-finals party ripple out to affect the team and the entire town, as well as the championship. These wonderful yet flawed characters are portrayed in a way that shows their human spirit, strength of character, and, of course, their love of hockey.
