“The Vancouver Canucks are very fortunate to have such a strong fan base in our community,” said CEO & President, Canucks Sports & Entertainment, Chris Zimmerman. “Throughout the seasons our fans have shown loyalty through the thick and thin and we wanted to capture the magic behind their devotion to the team. We feel that this film will be very relatable for our fans.”

The documentary focuses on 10 fans and their reactions and sentiments about the team. Interviews from key players and management were also captured in explaining the devotion Vancouver fans have to the team and what it means to be a part of the hockey culture in British Columbia.
