After a bitter family argument 18-year-old Andrea runs away from home. She heads to the nearest city and rents a room in a rundown boarding house, regretting her hasty flight from the family farm but afraid to return home to face her angry father.
She finds a job at a bookstore and settles into a comfortable routine, determined to put the past behind her and start and new life. But all those unwanted memories of home come flooding back at the oddest moments. How long can she live like this, when the past won't stay in the past...
An avid ice skater, she devotes all of her spare time to practicing a difficult jump at the local rink. The mainstay of her existence is the special bond she forms with Oliver, the oddly dressed pantomime clown she sees at the rink every Saturday.
With only a few bumps in the road, such as fending off poorly chosen dates and fielding personal questions from curious new friends, her new life is rocking along...until unforeseen events cause her carefully built house of cards to come tumbling down around her. With her world falling apart and totally alone in a strange town, she has nowhere to turn. Until one special friend comes to the rescue...
