Storyline

Alberta (Canada) rural farm-boy Sheldon Kennedy feels abused by dad when punished for poor performances compared to big brother Troy. Being recruited for professional ice-hockey at age 14 seems an ideal way out, straight to a party animal's good life. Yet after a Vegas marriage with Jana and hearing she's pregnant, Sheldon breaks down and tells her what's been eating at him for years: coach Graham James, who arranged for him to be transferred each time James was, sexually abused Sheldon, who fears to be laughed away as a queer and lose his only career avenue if he goes public. Written by KGF Vissers

Really positive
16 February 2000 | by (Calgary, Alberta) – See all my reviews

Excellent, tasteful portrayal of a disgusting series of events. Well acted by brilliant people. I had the pleasure of being an extra on this project and it was a very rewarding experience. I hope to see Paulie and Jonathan together on screen again.
