Lee comes from a family of NHL hockey players, but he's no hotshot--he plays because he loves the game. His coaches, however, spend all their time with the team's stars and leave ordinary players warming the bench.

When the coaches' determination to win puts Lee in hospital, however, he's forced to take a stand against their recklessness.

Red-Line Blues is the story of one player's fight for what's important in sport: fair play and love of the game.
