The events of this day are interwoven with scenes from a small slice of Canadian history -what has come to be known as "The Easter Epic," the longest game 7 overtime hockey game in NHL history which took place on April 18, 1987. The game was played between the Washington Capitals and the New York Islanders, going into quadruple overtime and the early hours of April 19. Exploring the intersections between twentieth-century global history, Canadian national memory, and personal family stories, the film probes the deeper meaning of refugee resettlement and what it means to survive and remake life in the aftermath of catastrophic loss and displacement.
