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

As Dorsey was running through the tunnel prior to the initial hockey game, we hear the US national anthem being played, signaling how late he is. At the Olympics, of course, no national anthems are played prior to games. See more
In the scene when Doug and Kate are fighting over the stereo music, and they keep flipping the channel, getting louder and louder, Kate is already wearing the engagement ring. The engagement is not announced until about five minutes (two or three scenes) later in the movie. See more
