In the beautifully written "Beartown"—which inspired the HBO series of the same name—a small town obsessed with the local junior hockey team is rocked by a shocking act of violence. As accusations and rumors fly, the town must grapple with its identity as never before.

The series continues and tensions rise when it’s rumored that the Beartown hockey team will be disbanded in "Us Against You". The entire future of the team and the town hinges on an upcoming game that could change everything forever.

Finally, the series comes to an evocative conclusion with "The Winners". "The Winners" return to the close-knit, resilient community of Beartown for a story about first loves, second chances, and last goodbyes. In the two years since the events of Beartown, the residents must face difficult questions and determine just what they are willing to sacrifice for their home.
