Biopic tells the tale of Herb Brooks and his history-making 1980 American men's Olympic hockey team.

ABSTRACT
"Do you believe in miracles? YES!" Those now-immortal words uttered by sportscaster Al Michaels encapsulated the United States men's Olympic hockey squad's improbable victory over a Soviet juggernaut at the 1980 Lake Placid Games, uniting a nation damaged by economic troubles and the ongoing Cold War behind their Cinderella story. Miracle follows the team, a makeshift band of college athletes going up against the world's best national hockey team, on their road to unlikely glory through the eyes of coach Herb Brooks.
