Twelve-year-old Laura Lee and her thirteen-year-old partner, Patric, have their sights set on the Junior Pair skating championship at the Montreal Grand Prix. After months of preparation, they are almost ready for the performance of their lives. Well drilled in their lifts and spins, the two skate like a dream together. But a training accident puts Patric out of action. Laura's dreams are shattered --unless she can find a new partner at the last minute. Laura has seen a boy at the rink with natural talent but no training. Can Scott turn into the perfect partner in just two weeks?
