Vallerie (Val) Skelly, who had lost her best friend Lucia to cystic fibrosis promised her she would do something meaningful in her honor, and to help others with the disease. Keeping her promise, Val convinced 39 women to join her in a 10-day hockey game to break the world record for the longest ice hockey game ever played. As the game and brutal schedule take a toll on bodies and minds, the players are held up by the same cystic fibrosis community they inspire. Lace Bite is a moving, uplifting story of community, love of hockey, and a desire to help others.
