An injured figure skater is sent to the mountains to recover from an injury. Once there, she meets an ex-hockey player and his young daughter and begins to realise that something is missing from her life.
Claire Benton is a famous up-and-coming figure skater who wants nothing more than to succeed. But when she is injured in a training session, she is forced to take a break from her rigid schedule. Now she fears she will not be ready for her next competition. During rehab in Canada, she meets Luke, a single father and former professional hockey player. He himself was forced to retire early but seems fine with it, spending his time raising his daughter while running a local shop. The two grow closer and both of them learn that something is missing from their lives - But how can Claire balance a demanding career with her new-found love?
Renowned figure skating coach Julian King has coached Claire Benson for three years, he only agreeing to coach people who have the talent and drive to win, which Claire had and has. She has not yet stepped on top of the national podium, a mental and resulting technical error at the end of her program which landed her in second place last year. With six weeks until the nationals and a spot on the world championship team on the line, Claire sustains the latest of her series of injuries. As such, Julian sends her to the West Ridge Rehabilitation Centre nestled in the mountains of British Columbia, the centre known for its accelerated rehabilitation program. Claire has a difficult time adjusting to the relaxed small town attitude, she always wanting to get things done in that drive to win. The diagnosis is mixed in that her Achilles injury will still allow her to skate but Dr. Schmidt recommends no jumping for four weeks to let the injury heal, which means that her first jump may be at the nationals itself. In town, Claire befriends Luke and his eight year old daughter Chamonix. Luke, the town's hardware store owner/manager and the general fix-it guy, was once a major league hockey player. Despite loving the sport, he decided to chuck in the career and move here when he sustained his latest injury, which coincided with his wife/Chamonix's mother leaving them. Although he coaches the kids in town including Chamonix, Luke has not played hockey since despite still loving the sport. Luke may be able to provide Claire a vision of what life after a competitive career may look like, Claire who has up to this point dreaded the thought. Claire's thought's are torn in different directions with the arrival into town of two people: Claire's widowed mother, Dale Benson, who has always wanted Claire to be happy and healthy, that happiness in all aspects of her life and not just in figure skating; and Julian himself, who is determined for Claire to work through the injury to win gold at nationals and the worlds this year.
