Dirty and dangerous games happen all the time, which is why most teams have an enforcer - a player who informally responds to dirty games in an even more aggressive or violent way in order to prevent the continuation of such games. But how will this affect the psyche of the security officer if he inflicted irreparable harm on another player? This issue is at the center of Destroyer's research into systemic and institutionalized violence. The film was nominated for four major Canadian Screen Awards, the most prestigious awards in Canadian television and film.
