Der unbestreitbar talentierte Eiskunstläufer Matty Marcus ist willens, alles für seinen olympischen Traum zu opfern, aber sein Mangel an Disziplin hat ihn schon einmal Gold gekostet. Jetzt steht er unter Druck. Er braucht einen Trainer, der ihn bei der Stange halten kann, aber gute Trainer sind nicht billig und Matty kann es sich nicht leisten, im Spiel zu bleiben, ganz egal, wie unbedingt er gewinnen will. Als ein lukrativer Job als Housesitter ihn ins ländliche Montana führt, tut Matty sein Bestes, um seinen Trainingsplan aufrechtzuerhalten. Die Ortsansässigen sind überraschend tolerant, was seinen exzentrischen Stil betrifft. Vor allem der gutaussehende junge Rancher Rob Lovely, der sehr viel mehr als ein typischer Cowboy ist. So wie Matty eine starke Hand braucht, damit er auf dem Eis sein Bestes gibt, zeigt Rob ihm, wie stark er sein kann, wenn er im Bett die Kontrolle aufgibt. Mit neugefundenem Selbstbewusstsein trainiert er noch härter, um an die Spitze zu kommen. Aber der Wettkampf läuft nach einem Zeitplan und um seinen olympischen Traum zu verwirklichen, muss Matty zu seinem neuen Trainer nach New York City gehen und Rob zurücklassen. Jetzt sieht er sich dem ultimativen Test gegenüber. Hat er während seiner Trainingssaison wirklich gelernt, wie man gewinnt – auf dem Eis und im Leben?
