The Screen Guide

Skeleton is a head-first, full-throttle slide down a winding, icy track. It’s one of the most dangerous and demanding sports there is. And, for four fearless young women from Australia’s beaches, it’s their unexpected chance at Olympic glory. Even though they’ll work together to qualify for the Games, in the end, only one will be selected to compete. Handpicked for the challenge, science is now pushing them to new extremes. This exhilarating documentary follows the fate of the team - the athletes, manager and coach - as they hurtle towards the 2006 Torino Winter Games, tracking both the scientific juggernaut and the all-too-human drama.
