Waking Up Wally

In 1991, the Gretzkys’ lives change forever when Walter Gretzky suffer a stroke. Suddenly, precious memories and nearly every recollection of his son Wayne’s record-smashing career are gone.


Walter’s behavior becomes childlike, impulsive and sometimes dangerous. But with the devoted support of his wife, Phyllis – and with the help of his children, friends and therapist – Wally finds his way back to his two great loves: family and hockey. He emerges from the experience a changed man, touching the lives of everyone he meets.
