A look at past, present and future black hockey players in all levels of hockey from the minor leagues to the majors. The film focuses on how the history of black athletes in hockey has influenced and encouraged more youth and their families to put their children into programs, regardless of race.

The film introduces us to Brampton’s Jaden Lindo, a young black athlete looking to get drafted in the 2014 NHL Draft. Hockey legend Don Cherry gives his insights as well as influential players such as Grant Fuhr who was the first black athlete to win a Stanley Cup and get inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame. Wayne Simmonds, Devonte Smith-Pelly, and Trevor Daley also talk about their experience of hardship and accomplishments that currently exist for black athletes in hockey today.
