In Part I of this harrowing true story, we meet John O'Sullivan, and his son Patrick. John's failures as a hockey player turn him into a living, breathing nightmare of a hockey parent. He demands perfection from Patrick on the ice at every turn. When John doesn't get perfection, he physically abuses Patrick. The older Patrick gets, the worse the abuse becomes. Open-hand slaps become full-on, full-force punches. Patrick quickly finds out that no one is coming to save him; he has to stand up to his father on his own.
