Featured performer:

Pretty In Pink (That80sband) step out of their Delorean with feathered hair and perfect pitch, blinding you with science. They are your hoverboard. They are your danger zone. Aaah, the 80s – that happy little decade between social activism and self-loathing grunge. A time when the Coreys were king and Tom Selleck set the standard for moustaches. While the cold war raged, we solved Rubik’s Cubes and took roll call, Bueller…Bueller…Bueller.

In 2006, a Tim Horton’s in southern New Brunswick sponsored the first local hockey team of women over 40, launching a new league. The team enjoyed being on top for a brief year, before other teams joined. Ten years later, the Lucky Puckers can’t win a game. As the season nears an end, the last business in town willing to sponsor them, Andy’s Meat Packers, pulls sponsorship. Playing their last season, three desperate members plot a way out of the mire, inspired by teammate Karen. Dr Karen Rx volunteers as Team Trainer. She is known for her 3-minute patient-visits and her enthusiasm for prescriptions. Soon Jen overcomes her anxiety, Gretchen leaps the boards like a pro and Cindy’s slap shot exceeds the coach’s. But when teammate Tracey gets suspicious of these unbelievable abilities, she goes undercover, setting off a chain of events that sinks the team so low there is no possible way out. Or is there?
