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

When Doug and Kate go out drinking after Nationals, we see Doug take a shot, and Kate take two; then they go dancing. When they come back from dancing, there are only two upside-down shots on the bar - but we've seen them drink three (and presumably, Doug has also had a second, making four). See more
Well, it was either that or "Curious George Plays Hockey". I took a chance.
