When you hit rock bottom, you can only go up. For Elizabeth Erickson, the climb back to where she was- and who she used to be- is more difficult than the fall.
At 16, Elizabeth was set up to be a figure skating legend. She won her first national title at just 17, but by 18, she was crumbling under the pressure with lackluster scores and a program she can't connect to.
A year later, after taking time off from the sport following an all-too-public suicide attempt, she's trying to climb her way back to where she used to be. As she struggles to deal with nightmares about her suicide attempt, she finds herself at the rink most nights, skating alone under the lights. Until one night, Noah Li walks through the doors of the rink and changes her life forever.
Noah Li was already a force within the figure skating world at age 19. With two national titles and numerous international medals under his belt. He wasn't expecting an ankle injury to take him out of the sport for so long- or to throw him off his game as much as it did. There's something vulnerable under Noah's confidence that draws Elizabeth toward him. As the two get closer to each other and where they used to be, they find themselves healing. But will a relationship help them fix their broken pieces or scatter them even further?
