44 minute or 72 minute versions

Violence is Hockey is a controversial subject worldwide. Debates rage, as no other professional sport seemingly embraces this violent pursuit. But how did such violence embed itself into the very fabric of such a highly skilled game? This film examines the dark and shady world of ‘The Code’ – the unofficial rules that govern fighting in Canadian hockey. A code where punishment is not only doled out but expected; where honour and devotion to your teammates transcends the rules of the game.
