Doug Cannon is a video whiz, a decent hockey goalie --- and overweight. He is often the butt of his friend's jokes, but he tries not to let it get to him. That's before he meets cyclist Red Roberts. All summer, Doug struggles against his old habits to become the young athlete Red thinks he can be. At the same time, he looks within himself for the self-respect he had put aside long ago. But does he have what it takes to "really" go the distance, to reach for an Olympic dream?
