'There was this time when everything seemed to have come together. And so obviously it was time to go and screw it all up.' Sam is sixteen and a skater.
Just so there are no terrible misunderstandings: skating = skateboarding.
There's no ice. Life is ticking along nicely for Sam: his mum's got rid of her rubbish boyfriend, he's thinking about college and he's met someone.
Alicia. Then a little accident happens. One with big consequences for someone just finding his way in life.
Sam can't run (let alone skate) away from this one. He's a boy facing a man's problems and the question is - has he got what it takes to confront them?
