Synopsis

Rajveer Singh (Vinay Virmani) has the talent to be one of the nation's top hockey players, but he has one problem: his father's devotion to work and family forbids him to play. Now, with the help of an unlikely new coach—and former NHLer—Coach Winters (Rob Lowe), along with the coach's 'off-limits' kid sister (Camilla Belle), and in spite of being constantly undermined by his entitled cousin (Russell Peters), he's putting together an unlikely all-Sikh hockey team behind his father's back; however, when his team makes an unexpected run for the Cup, and with the entire Sikh community inspired, Rajveer has to choose between playing on, or respecting his father's wishes.
