Meet the women of Team USA: twenty high-achieving, defiant female athletes, both seasoned players and enthusiastic rookies. Follow this dream team for the many months of training in practice arenas and tournaments across the United States and Canada in anticipation of Nagano. Join them in the locker room and feel the tension of pregame strategies and the Olympic team selection process. Experience the drama of the battles on the ice and the friendships that were made along the way. Meet their coach, a mythical figure in men's ice hockey who treated his players as world-class athletes, and the families and friends of the team, who encouraged these girls to follow their dreams and challenge all prejudices against contact sports for women. Watch and be inspired by this unforgettable team--the women who risked everything in crashing the net.
