At competitions and at home in Canton, Michigan, the film shows how Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir mitigate the pressure of sharing the same rink and the same coach (Marina Zueva) with their rivals – Meryl Davis and Charlie White.
In Virden, Manitoba, the film follows hometown heroes Paige Lawrence and Rudi Swiegers on their own path to the podium. But as they compete for a spot on the world team, Paige suffers a last minute concussion.
Ice, Sweat and Tears also follows Patrick Chan as he smashes records and builds a program with new choreographer Jeffrey Buttle. Unlike pair skaters, Patrick must handle the pressure of being the best without the support of a partner.
Featuring luminaries like Kurt Browning, Elvis Stojko, Lori Nichol, Marina Zoueva and Christy Krall, Ice, Sweat and Tears shows how today’s athletes are pushing skating to new heights.
