At the 1988 Winter Olympics at Calgary, we see Doug Dorsey battered in a vicious hockey game against West Germany. We then see Kate Moseley doing her program and falling when a lift goes bad. Both have fought all their life to get to the Olympics and suddenly the dream has been shattered. The movie then follows Kate, a tempermental but talented figure skater, through many partners until finally her coach resorts to recruiting a hockey player. Through the difficult training of 15 hours of skating a day they finally prepare for Nationals and the Olympics. A romance is budding and their final show could bend or break them as they try to achieve their dreams of an Olympic Gold medal. Written by

While they are in France for the Olympics watching the first US team skate, as the announcer is reading the scores in French. The scores on the board do not match the numbers the announcer is saying. He says cinq sept meaning 5.7, however the number in 5.8 or cinq huit. The number 5.7 does not appear on the score board even though the announcer calls it out. See more
