Alex McKenzie is back, a promising young hockey player who hopes to make the juniors in Quebec City. Though he still prefers fishing and roaming bush roads on his quad, he trains hard under his demanding coach Larry in his hometown on the Lower North Shore of the St. Lawrence.
His buddy Tommy is vying to make the juniors too. Once in Quebec City, things change. Tommy gets sullen and obnoxious as he hangs out with some dubious types.
He and Alex grow apart and then tragedy strikes. In this sequel to Break Away, Jessie on my Mind, young people deal with powerful peer pressure, budding love, and catastrophe.
