about

Fresh off the plane from Vancouver, sixteen-year-old hockey player Aaron Wong is excited to be starting his first year at Podium, the Calgary school for top teen athletes. Aaron has to make friends and fit in at a new high school, while also adjusting to a new home and a family with a different culture than his own. Luckily, he finds a tight-knit group of friends who are elite athletes in their own sports to help show him the ropes.

Things seem to be going well for the rookie -- but the hockey team captain has it in for him. Aaron''s world is turned upside down when the captain makes him the target of a brutal hazing at the team''s first party. To turn his year around, Aaron has to overcome his embarrassment about the incident and confide in friends and coaching staff.
