Skating Coach Antonia Wright calls 24/7 Sports Network researcher Rebecca “Bex” Levy to inform her that student is the best young skater in America. Bex sees a great story in the making so she meets thirteen years old Jeremy Hunt. The teen asks her to talk to his father Craig, who does not want his son competing in the Nationals. After watching how magnificent Jeremy skates, she talks with Craig; he blows her off. Later she learns father and son vanished.
Deciding on a documentary on past skating greats and where they are now, Bex interviews Robby Sharpton who failed to get a medal in the Olympics. Following the end of his career, Robby went to jail for spousal abuse. His skating partner Rachel Rose disappeared leaving him to pursue a single's career. Bex ponders whether Robbie killed Rachel so she searches for his missing partner, whom she finds in the Pocono's. A few days later Rachel is murdered; Bex believes her story was a factor in the homicide. When she returns to Rachel's home, she shockingly finds Jeremy and Craig live there.
