Eleven-year-old Josie Grun escapes from Communist East Germany with her mother and father one dark night in 1989 just months before the Berlin Wall crumbles. Braving border guards, barbed wire, and rifle shots, Josie reluctantly turns her back on all that was once her familiar. Crossing the ocean to join uncle in Calgary, she attempts to learn a foreign language and overcome the prejudices of her schoolmates in order to forge a new life. Clinging to the passion that has always been a comfort, her figure skating, she enters a local competition to prove that she is free-on the ice and off.
