It’s sport at its powerful, universal best. Rhona Martin and her team go through trial and tribulation to reach their Olympic dream and are as surprised as anyone when the UK becomes a nation of curling aficionados. Told with irreverent charm through interview, recreation and intimate archive, A Brilliant Curling Story takes us on an exhilarating journey of humble triumph.
