The true story of Richard Pimentel, a brilliant public speaker with a troubled past, who returns from Vietnam severely hearing -impaired and finds a new purpose in his landmark efforts on the behalf of Americans with disabilities.
Long Bay resident Donald Foley, a life long curler and more recent curling coach, has just passed away. He has requested that his cremated ashes be bored into a specific curling stone he has just had retrieved from the bottom of Long Bay. His will also has a non-binding codicil to reunite the last team he coached to curl in the Golden Broom Bonspiel in town, a Long Bay team which has never won and that team which was the closest ever to doing so. Donald wants that specific stone in which he is buried to be delivered as the final shot to sit on the button for the win for the Long Bay team. Beyond the four team members not having curled at all since their last bonspiel ten years ago, they each have issues in their lives which may make coming together as a team and winning, and curling in its entirety difficult or a non-priority. Lead Neil Bucyk's life is directed by his controlling wife Linda, a right she believes she has as his livelihood is in her family's business, a funeral home. ... Written by
In an attempt to help make this Canadian-made film successful, Alliance Atlantis put on an advertising campaign that was on par with a campaign for a Hollywood-made film. See more »
Paul Cutter's moral dilemma as a cheater is entirely contrary to the rules of curling. Canadian and world curling rules require players to call their own infractions. In the situations depicted in the film, "burning" a moving stone is an infraction by the sweepers, not the player delivering the stone. It's the responsibility of the front end, never up to Cutter, to call the burned stones. See more »
[at her Alcoholics Anonymous meeting]
The point is lately, I've been feeling like I need a "touch me up" cause I just don't know which way to turn.
Slimy guy at meeting:
Hey, you can turn to me anytime you want.
Thank you. That's sweet but I'd rather shit in my mouth.

I lived in Ft. St. John, BC for 1 year as an itinerant teacher and only got an idea of how important Curling was. I never did it and now I wish I had. That movie was so special and I was glued to you folks getting that game on and winning it. It was truly a fun movie and the characters were really great. I love Canadian men. They made my time in BC very fun indeed. Great to see the movie on regular TV. Thanks for your endeavor. It was fun! Best to Canada in the Olympics this week - I know you'll smoke 'em! We know you'll take Curling for sure. I hope you will enjoy the rest of the winter and make some more movies, and send them down here.
