Synopsis

Shorthanded is a comedy about lost dreams and second chances. It explores the trials and tribulations of middle-aged men's lives and most importantly, it is a story about friendship and to what ends one would go for true friends and the pursuit of their dreams.
Eight men attempt to win the coveted Tri County Old Timers Hockey League Championship in their small town. They feel cursed since they have never won any championship since the boys lost their "game 7" years ago while playing Junior B hockey. Facing another "game 7" scenario, the desparate men must fight the other team as well as each other in order to redeem themselves in the eyes of their wives, children and community. Hilarity ensues in the dressing room mayhem!
