At a party, 18-year-old figure skater Carley gets to know her classmate John more closely. Although she seems disinterested, he manages to invite her to a date. After she is selected to participate in the Olympic games, everything seems to be going well, but during her first date with John, Carley breaks down and is taken to hospital. There she gets the diagnosis: cancer. With the support of her family and friends, she declares war on cancer; she fights and even makes a comeback on the ice. She decides – as does the heroine of the underlying true story – to live according to her motto: « always smile and hold your ground ! »
