This rootsy rock song plays over the opening credits and scenes of the film. We see aerial vistas of Northern Minnesota. The lush green forests and brilliant blue lakes. The landscape abruptly changes as we fly over massive, open pit mines that look more like the Grand Canyon or a lunar landscape than a source of iron ore. On the edge of the mines, we see the small mining town of Eveleth. We push in on Eveleth and see the various residents amidst their routines on another long summer day. A slow drive down main street, we see the largest hockey stick in the world at a corner park, a large wall mural that proclaims “The Home of Hockey,” Penalty Box bar, U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame, and more. We see a group of young boys and girls playing street hockey. Hockey isn’t just a sport here – it’s a way of life. This is a song about life in rural America.
This song is intended for an artist/band in the style of Martin Zellar and the Gear Daddies
