A chance meeting on stage at the University Theatre introduces Sammy to Maggie, a music major from Drummond, and her musician friend Zee. Sammy and Maggie share immediate chemistry and their relationship deepens quickly, but a brutal attack unravels their world and the fallout threatens their relationship.
Sammy flees to Phoenix after a misunderstanding with Maggie but his dreams of playing in the NBA are realized when he is drafted by the Suns.

He meets the beautiful Ella on the basketball court playing "Res ball" but Maggie's face lingers in the corners of his mind even though misunderstanding and an unsolved murder wedge between them.
