HELLO DESTROYER tells the story of promising junior hockey player, Tyson Burr (Jared Abrahamson), and his struggle with his identity and sense of belonging after a violent outburst during a hockey game drastically changes his life. Facing exclusion from the game he loves, Tyson must face the consequences of his aggressive actions, even while surrounded by a game that glorifies those very traits.

With stunning cinematography and relatable issues, HELLO DESTROYER tugs on the audience’s heartstrings while delving into issues to which we can all relate.
