When it's His Word Against Hers
The small town, Beartown, is slowly losing ground to the ever-encroaching trees surrounding it, but with the junior ice-hockey team having a shot at winning the national semi-finals, all the dreams of this place now rest on the shoulders of a handful of teenage boys. A heavy burden that becomes the catalyst for a violent act that will leave a young girl traumatized and a town in turmoil.
Beartown is a Swedish series based on the best-selling novel by Fredrik Backman, about a small forest town in the north of Sweden. But, shocking accusations against the star player of the team shakes Beartown to its core as blame and mistrust tests loyalties in the close-knit community, making everyone the judge, jury and executioner. Do you have the courage to stand up and tell the truth, knowing no one wants to believe you?
