The Swedish import, Beartown follows the story of a junior ice hockey team in Sweden which was once-successful but is now riddled with has-beens.The town’s only hope comes in the form of Peter Andersson, who is a former NHL player that returns to his hometown with his family to turn the local team around. Soon the Bears are lead to victory with the help of seventeen year-old Kevin Erdahl, a highly talented hockey star and speedy underclassman Amat but when a victory night party turns traumatic, the town is quickly torn apart. With a chilling dissection of right and wrong and the coach’s daughter, Maya, at the center of it all the series explores family trauma, truths, lies, and ultimately, the courage it takes to stand up for justice.
