In the world of hockey, the confrontation between Canada and Russia in 1988 was surpassed only by the Summit Series of 1972. The two best hockey players in the world, Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux, played together for the first time. Their outstanding performance led Team Canada to victory and astonished audiences around the world. This documentary feature captures the strategies of the coaching staff (Mike Keenan, Jean Perron, and John Muckler), the privacy of the dressing room, the friendship between Wayne and Mario, and their glorious achievement.
