Plot synopsis
These guys have found their Game, which saved them from the dreary everyday reality. In the game everything is for real: offense, aggression, joy, struggle, excitement. It has become a diversion and the meaning of life, the reference point for all sorts of values and a new religion. It has turned their days into an endless chain of victories and defeats of the favourite team, it has subordinated their lives to somebody else's game which has become one of their own. A film about a few days in the life of hockey fans.
