Synopsis

Sam Oliver is a meek, plain-looking divorce lawyer and youth hockey coach with comatose social life and an immunity to his clients’ suffering. But when a hockey player’s mother shows up in his office seeking a divorce, everything changes.

Sam is immediately attracted to the drop-dead gorgeous Rebecca Warren, despite his disappointing realization that she is just another crazy hockey mom. Rebecca believes her ten-year old son, Donnie, will become the world’s greatest hockey player. Sam doubts it and also doubts a woman like Rebecca would ever want to be with him. Sam is used to being alone – he copes with loneliness by entrenching himself in a fantasy world dominated by a sleazy divorce lawyer and his paralegal lover, Fay Blondeshell. But Donnie turns out to be a superstar and Sam’s attraction to Rebecca brings his fantasy world to life, plunging him into a web of ruthless office politics, adultery, blonde sirens, maniacal parents, sports betting and quantum physics.

Divorce and the Holy Puck is a darkly humorous tale that depicts a lonely divorce lawyer’s outlandish attempt to make sense of a world gone crazy-searching for the answer to the all consuming question, “Who am I?”
