Tucked in a forest in the frozen north Beartown's residents are tough and hardworking. They don't expect life to be easy but they do expect it to be fair. Which is why the sudden loss of their hockey players to the rival town of Hed hurts. Everyone needs something to cheer for in the long winter nights. Now they have nothing. So when a new star player arrives Coach Peter sees an opportunity to rebuild the team - to take on Hed and restore Beartown's fortunes. But not everyone in town sees it his way.As the big game between both towns approaches the rivalry turns bitter and all too real. Once the stands rumbled with threats to 'kill' and 'ruin' each other but the residents didn't mean it. Now they do.By the time the last goal is scored someone in Beartown will be dead . . .
