Plot & Details

A Sikh-Canadian hockey fanatic from Toronto finds his slapshot dreams in a face-off with his family's traditional beliefs. Rajveer Singh (Vinay Virmani) is a natural born hockey player. With the help of his new coach (Rob Lowe), a former NHL star, Rajveer plans to assemble an all-Sikh hockey team that will take the sport by storm. Meanwhile, Rajveer's father has begun pressuring him to stop playing hockey, and help out with the family business. Despite being encouraged to pursue his dreams by the coach's daughter (Camilla Belle), however, Rajveer continually finds his efforts thwarted by his overbearing cousin (Russell Peters). But when the fledgling team miraculously finds the Stanley Cup within grasp, the conflicted young athlete is forced to choose between committing to his religion, or making sports history.
