Bizarrely, three outside observers have also been invited to attend: a rock star, the famous children’s novelist Claire Seth and the Italian monk and author Roberto Salus. Following a tragic event, the meeting is suspended, and a battle between the Ministers and the monk ensues, as they believe Salus was revealed a top-secret information during a confession. While Salus remains the stubborn defender of the secrecy of confessions, the authorities are overwhelmed by doubts and uncertainties.

Thirty-five year old Max is a prisoner of his own past. Since the death of his parents seven years ago, all he does is hang out in the living room of his small apartment watching hockey games with his girlfriend Julie and his childhood friends, or desultorily managing the hockey card store that he inherited from his parents. But when Julie suddenly decides to leave him, Max is forced to re-evaluate the way he’s been living. And thus begins a long interior journey filled with obstacles and bad decisions, at the end of which Max will have to begin mourning his father, stop looking backward toward the past, and finally face the future.

Between the first Montreal Canadians match of the 2009-2010 season and the last, against the Philadelphia Flyers seven months later, Max will have to deal with the return of his sister Nathalie, who has been in exile since the death of their parents, and the insecurity of his best friend Phil as he enters into a stormy relationship with Nathalie. Above all, and with the help of his other old friends Richard and François, Max will have to learn from Julie’s departure, despite his irresistible desire to get back together with her.

Ça sent la coupe is a sensitive dramatic comedy filled with tenderness and humour. Steeped in its characters’ love for the game of hockey, the film explores not only Max’s powerful transformation, but also that of a group of friends – and an entire generation
