The Railpath Hero

Heroes aren't born. They're revealed in moments of resilience and shaped by acts of courage. Damon's hockey star may be on the rise, but his hopes of making a top tier team are sinking fast due to the sorry excuse for skates he's forced to wear. Just in time for the tryout of a lifetime, Damon receives a brand new pair of skates from a trusted coach. But the gift comes with an unthinkable price tag and leaves Damon with an impossible choice to make. When the time comes to lace up, Damon uses inspired ingenuity and a warrior spirit to alter his new skates and so begins the transformation of the trauma of sexual abuse into something redemptive.
