A documentary about Teemu Selänne (Teemu Selanne in the US), the best Finnish ice hockey player of all time, whose heroic tales we’ve followed for over two decades. In this documentary Teemu lets the viewer get close and beneath the surface. The film follows Selänne’s journey from childhood to the 2012-2013 NHL season. We see the life story of an exceptional athlete inside and out, not only through Teemu’s words, but through the eyes of his loved ones and colleagues.
