Storyline

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 Pat Delin <jscott@iastate.edu>

I like the movie very much,i watched it a hundred times! i like kate moseley's character,really,"what a bitch!" my favorite part was when kate and doug played hockey and she got irritated when she can't score(i love her expression!) moira and d.b. make a good pair so sad they were not given another project together.
