Description

Queen Elizabeth I has arrived in Newfoundland in search of her loyal servant, Sir Francis Drake. Suddenly, a fleet of ships appears off the coast — it's the Spanish Armada! But before the full blast of a naval battle can blow Looney Bay to bits, Newfoundland's boy hero, Reese McSkittles, convinces Queen Bess and the Spanish Admiral to settler their differences the Canadian way — with a game of hockey!
