By Whistler / November 22nd 2016

"This Doc is about this walk along Highway 7 from Toronto to Ottawa to draw attention to the victims of sexual abuse. It was put together by ex-NHL star Theo Fleury who was assaulted by one of his junior hockey coaches. Theo is coming to the fest and he has an axe to grind with the statistics of how many women and men are abused. The stats are astounding and Theo really empowers people.
