Join the Lake Placid Film Festival in celebrating the 45th Anniversary of this iconic Paul Newman film!

Facing closure at the end of the season, Pennsylvania's pathetic minor-league ice-hockey team, the Charlestown Chiefs, find themselves stuck in a long losing streak. But, under those circumstances, and refusing to throw in the towel, the experienced coach, Reggie Dunlop, enlists the help of the club's newest players, the dauntless Hanson Brothers, who specialise in foul play. Now, as the revitalised Chiefs return to winning ways, its star player, Ned Braden, insists on playing fair, refusing to goon it up. Will the Charlestown Chiefs win the decisive championship game against their feared opponents, the Syracuse Bulldogs?
