Madison Henry has been skating almost as long as she's been walking.   She is living her dream and on her way to the Olympics. She's had only one friend since she was six years old, Jack. Now at sixteen, she is completely oblivious to his deep feelings for her. There has been no time for anything but skating for as long as she can remember. When tragedy strikes unexpectedly, Madison is forced to look at her life in a different way…and accept one without skating.

"Before I Go" spotlights the thrill of women's ice skating, and the unbreakable bond a mother and daughter share.
