There's no margin for error, no getting drunk, and no breaking curfew in the high-stakes game of junior hockey. Capture the joys and anguish of young Baie-Comeau players throughout an entire season when the team isn't doing well and the pressure to win is intense. Junior juxtaposes the life the hockey players wish to have - signing autographs and playing for the fun of it - against the reality of the money and wheeling and dealing of the junior hockey league organization. This is not your typical sports documentary: Superb filmmaking and the boys' rough and tumble passage to manhood play out in an entertaining drama which took the Best Canadian Documentary Award at Hot Docs 2008.
