Following lead singer Gord Downie's announcement that he was battling incurable brain cancer, iconic Canadian band The Tragically Hip went on a now-legendary 2016 tour that captured the heart of Canadians. The film goes backstage to give a unique and exclusive perspective into The Tragically Hip’s world, as they admit that they had doubts Gord would be in good enough health to be able to perform so many concerts. It offers glimpses of behind-the-scenes and on-stage footage, and personal interviews with the band and close friends, as well as from die-hard fans across the country.

With poetry reading by Liam Coady at 6:40PM. Film at 7:00PM.
