REPRESENTED BY KFF

The film is about three old men – retired professional ice hockey players and coaches, close friends for over 60 years, who played together in one team for more than a decade. Now, after some years, they return to the ice rink not to compete, but to train a group of  eight- year-old kids. With their pre-war philosophy of sport, will they be able to communicate with today’s kids in a modern sport world?
