Synopsis

Yvan just played his final hockey game. Since being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, those moments on the ice were the only times the strong and confident man in him reappeared. The arena deserted, his wife France offers him one last chance to be the young hockey player again, one last time around. And now, on this icy stage, the love of her life re-emerges, reliving his moments of glory. The game was his life; his very existence passed through the connection between skate and surface. As he takes his final lap, he savors every moment. From the echoing sounds of this empty arena emerges an unaffected younger man. Alone in the stands, France shares her husband’s emotions. Because with the coming darkness, this is her time to say goodbye as well.
