Chris plays for the ice hockey team Arctic Wolves but it's not all fun and games - some kids pick on him, (because of his small size), and his friend Derek because he is the only African-American in the league. The pair try to prove that size and race do not matter when playing sport.
Eleven-year-old Chris is small for his age, so he can't believe it when he learns he's been selected for the exclusive all-star travelling hockey team. It's not all fun and games playing for the Arctic Wolves, however. Some of the kids on the opposition are much bigger and rougher, and they pick on Chris because of his size. But Chris isn't the only one getting picked on. His teammate, Derek, is an aggressive player who also happens to be the only African American in the league. Chris and Derek develop some powerful on-ice chemistry that makes them a winning combination. But will that be enough for them to prove that size and race doesn't matter?
