The Olympics often became a site of Cold War cultural tensions, pitting the United States against the Soviet Union. This film is based on real events and shows how the U.S. Olympic hockey team defeated the heavily-favored Soviets at the 1980 Lake Placid Winter Olympics and then went on to win the gold medal. The film concludes with actual footage of the U.S. team members receiving their medals, along with descriptions narrated by ABC Sportsbroadcaster Al Michaels of their accomplishments after the 1980 Olympics.
