Velike stvari se zgodijo tistim, ki sanjajo velike sanje.Casey Carlyle je izredno bistra dijakinja. Rada bi postala prvakinja v umetnostnem drsanju, njena mama pa upa, da bo nadaljevala študij na Harvardu. Nekega dne Casey čaka veliko presenečenje. V okviru šolske naloge, s katero naj bi si odprla pot na Harvard, se odpravi v drsalno šolo. Tam spozna, da jo drsanje privlači veliko bolj kot karkoli drugega. Seveda se znajde v precepu. Naj prisluhne svojemu srcu in poskusi srečo na tekmovanju v drsanju ali naj upošteva mamine želje?
A high-school bookworm transforms into a swan. Brainy Casey Carlyle has never quite fit in. Caught between her fantasy of becoming a championship figure skater and her strong-willed mother, who has her on the fast track to Harvard, she can only hope to be like Nikki, Tiffany and Gen--three elite skating prodigies who are ruthlessly competing on the US National circuit (and have attitudes to match). But when Casey gets the chance to train with Gen and her coach, a disgraced former skating champion who also happens to be Gen's mother, she must dash her own mother's hopes in order to pursue her dream. Now, with only the support of Gen's teenage brother, a hunky Zamboni driver, Casey takes on the challenge of her life when she finds herself competing against the best to make it into the championship circuit and become a real "ice princess."
