After suffering a humiliating loss at the Grand Prix Final, Japanese skater Yuri Katsuki is ready to hang up his skates forever. Taking time off the ice, he re-evaluates his passion, only to go home without medals, confidence, or reason to return to the rink. That is until his idol, Victor Nikiforov, appears with a surprising offer–he wants to coach Yuri!

This news doesn’t sit well with others in the skating world, and Yuri must prove that he’s worthy of Victor’s attention–by facing Russia’s rising star, Yuri Plisetsky. With new routines and Victor’s undying support, Yuri will discover more about himself and his feelings within.

With Victor close by his side, Yuri will find the true meaning of victory! Get your tickets here!
