Is it Jay - the budding musician whose father wants him to be an NHL player even though he hates hockey? Is it Kim, the math whiz and talented artist whose mother recently died and left her alone with a cold and abusive father? Is it Nick?

Gambling changes their lives until events spiral out of control and in the final showdown one of them will find love, one will be a hero, one will be the victim of a near-fatal accident and somebody will die on the snowy forest track.
