Now that his hockey career is ending, what will become of his life? Felix Batterinski grew up tough in Northern Ontario where hockey was the only way out of a life of grinding poverty. He got out and enjoyed fame as a hockey "enforcer" for the Philadelphia Flyers. But fame is fleeting. Now in his thirties and at the end of his playing career, Felix tries to make a go of it as a player-coach for a Finnish club.

When a controversial play brings his comeback bid to a screeching halt, Felix is faced with his own obsolescence and begins a tragic descent into disillusion and despair.
