When high school hockey phenom (and gifted pianist/composer) Colton Vogler transfers to the town of Driftless to play out his senior year, he's one step closer to a career as a professional goalie. But a violent hazing incident, an increasingly erratic host family, and the mystery surrounding a car accident that paralyzed his predecessor on the team lead Colton to gradually suspect that things in Driftless are not as they seem—and that, rather than serving as assets, his youth, intellect, and physical talent have put him in grave danger.
