Hello Destroyer tells the story of Jared Abrahamson (Tyson Burr) who plays a young junior hockey player and new recruit for the minor league team, The Prince George Warriors. He is the “enforcer.” The guy whose primary tasks are digging the puck out of corners and protecting more skilled players. Spurred on by his coach, Tyson inadvertently injures another player in an in-game act of violence. In an instant his life is abruptly turned upside down; torn from the fraternity of the team and the coinciding position of prominence, he is cast as a pariah and ostracized from the community. As he struggles with the repercussions of the event, desperate to find a means of reconciliation and a sense of identity, his personal journey ends up illuminating troubling systemic issues around violence.

Hello Destroyer won 5 Leo Awards in 2017 including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay and Lead Performance – Male for Jared Abrahamson.
