HBO Nordic has revealed its first trailer for Beartown (Björnstad), based on the novel by Fredrik Backman (A Man Called Ove). Peter Grönlund (Goliath) directs all five episodes.
Hockey is the last beacon of hope for Björnstad, so when its junior hockey team makes the national semifinal, the burden of the entire town’s dreams weigh heavily on the shoulders of its teenage superstars. However, the day of the semi-final is also the catalyst for a violent act that will leave a young girl traumatised and the town in turmoil.
This is a story of the hope that brings a small society together, the secrets that tear it apart, the courage it takes for an individual to go against the pack and the consequences of how we raise our children.
