Matt Slaughter (Stephan James) is poised to become the next NHL great and the first black professional player from Nova Scotia. In the days before he’s set to be picked up by a team, racial tensions are erupting at his school. While he tries to keep himself out of trouble, Matt finds it increasingly difficult to separate himself from the fights that keep occurring. He grows close to Jayme Crowley (Sarah Jeffery), a woman of mixed race whose white boyfriend John (Steven Love) happens to be friends with Todd (Dennis Theriault), the person at the centre of problems. If dealing with the racism and from Jayme’s boyfriend isn’t enough, Matt must also deal with his criminal brother whose behaviour also threatens Matt’s chances at achieving his dream.
