The New Canadian Curling Club tells the story of a Chinese physician, a Jamaican Tim Horton’s manager, a South Asian father, and a 17-year old Syrian refugee who live in a rural Albertan town. In an effort to welcome newcomers to Canada, the community decides to offer a free, “Learn to Curl” program. But when its organizer slips on the ice and breaks her hip, the rink’s ice custodian and former champion curler Stuart MacPhail is forced to step in as head coach. Trouble is, Stuart has some strong opinions about immigrants—opinions he has trouble keeping to himself. What follows is the hilarious and inspiring story of a group of unlikely athletes who face off against local prejudice and become a true team.
