Summary, etc.:
The extraordinary story of Maurice "The Rocket" Richard, whose tireless fight on and off the ice ignited - and forever changed - a generation. As a young boy from blue collar Qub̌ec, Richard had a dream to play in the National Hockey League. Beneath his soft-spoken, working class exterior burned a passion that transformed this young factory worker into "The Rocket". In the 1950's pre-helmet days of hockey, facing constant discrimination, The Rocket played with a finesse, speed and fire that defied all odds and made him a legend.
