This sports melodrama boldly illustrates the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. Iowa farm girl Alexis Winston has a God-given talent for ice skating. With the encouragement and training of the local ice-skating rink operator, she manages to win the first prize trophy at a regional ice-skating competition. At the competition, she is spotted by an Olympic coach, who promotes her as an underdog competitor, and she skyrockets to fame. Her career is going like gangbusters, until a tragic accident occurs. But love turns her adversity into a genuine miracle. After more than 30 years, Donald Wrye directs the remake of his 1979 cult movie, while American figure skater star Taylor Firth plays the role of unfortunate heroine Alexis.
