After Owen Christiansen's reckless behavior costs him his NHL career, he lands on a crabbing boat in Alaska where he meets Elise "Scotty" McFlynn, the captain's daughter and a newly minted Anchorage police officer. The attraction is mutual, but Owen no longer believes and feels that his life is worth nothing, while Scotty is wary of relationships. When Owen's brother, Caspar, arrives with the news that he is wanted for questioning in a murder in Minnesota, Owen, accompanied by Scotty, returns home with Caspar. As the Christiansens work through this family crisis with their Christian values in tact, Scotty's defenses begin to crumble.
