On Sunday, November 17, 2019, the Canadian ice hockey community through untold hockey stories that begin at 12:01am on a frozen lake outside Calgary, Alberta. We experience all the ups and downs through the one-of-a-kind hockey characters: a former NHL player following in his father’s footsteps; a determined young boy who won’t let his cystic fibrosis keep him off the ice; a Haitian Canadian who overcame racism; a First Nations boy adjusting to being a role model in his community; an Olympian dreaming of a future where her daughter could play professional hockey; a man who created an LGBTQ hockey league after being shunned by his childhood friends and many more. This is a tapestry of moments shared by Canadians celebrates the lasting power of community hockey to inspire, teach, and unite people from all walks of life.
