Stanley Cup winner, NHL star, and bestselling author Theo Fleury is open to new challenges, and the documentary Victor Walk chronicles his 10-day journey from Toronto to Ottawa. Directed by Michael David Lynch, the picture spotlights the stories of survivors of child sex abuse, and their tales of tragedy and ultimate survival serve as the documentary’s heart and soul.
“What I realized was my story wasn’t that my story wasn’t so unique,” said Fleury. “I shared a lot of the same things as a lot of people in the world. It’s been seven years since I did that and I could tell you that my life has profoundly changed since I told my own story.”
During our interview, Fleury talked about his collaboration with Lynch, what Victor Walk means to him and why, most importantly why he sees himself as a “victor.” Click on the media bar below to hear the discussion:
