About The Movie:
World champion ski racer, Justin O’Neill (Donovan) has returned to his family’s ski resort to prepare for the Annual Winter Classic ski race that will mark his comeback after a colossal fall in Austria. Given that he’s in the later stages of his career, the pressure is on for Justin, and yet, he finds himself without a coach at this crucial time. Justin reluctantly enlists the help of his childhood friend and local ski instructor, Kayla Green (Sullivan). As they spend time together, Kayla helps Justin regain his confidence and they also grow closer. However, after a training setback, Justin and Kayla’s friendship – and possible romance – is on the brink of ending. Now, Justin must decide if competitive skiing is the life he truly wants or walk away from the only existence he’s ever known to follow his heart and make amends with his family from whom he had grown distant, and most of all…Kayla.
