Storyline

A young junior hockey player's life is shattered by an in-game act of violence. In an instant his life is abruptly turned upside down; torn from the fraternity of the team and the coinciding position of prominence, he is cast as a pariah and ostracized from the community. As he struggles with the repercussions of the event, desperate to find a means of reconciliation and a sense of identity, his personal journey ends up illuminating troubling systemic issues around violence.

The perfect sad movie: It's a punch in the stomach most viewers can't handle.
6 October 2017 | by doug-benetSee all my reviews

The stereotyped Hollywood of happy ending does not apply to this movie: Thankfully. It's not a easy movie to handle. It won't make you feel better. It will remind you how tough the world is and how simple decision can permanently affect your life. This movie is to be appreciated for its wonderfully simple yet profound acting, very little dialog but lots of emotion running with the marvelous cinematography.

The end is tough to handle and it opens a debate about the frailty of youth in the contemporary world and the lack of efficient psychological care for the tough times.
