Twelve-year-old Tanner Phillips fishes the Oneida Lake Ice Fishing Derby every year with his dad. Last year, he ruined everything—losing the competition and losing some of his grandfather’s gear. This year, Tanner is determined to not only prove his skills on the ice, but also show his dad, once and for all, that he’s no longer a little kid.
But as soon as they get out on the ice, the competition turns disastrous.
When one of the competitors goes missing and another gets injured, Tanner’s father must leave Tanner and his new friend, Richie, alone on the ice. After their ice hut comes unhitched, Tanner and Richie find themselves blown across the frozen lake in a blinding snowstorm.
Alone. Without their cell phones. Trapped, on thin ice. Suddenly, it isn’t just about the winning the derby—it’s about life and death. In one perilous night, Tanner will have to prove not to his father, but to himself, that he has the courage and determination to survive.
A quirky widow in her early sixties takes her first job ever in a private investigator’s office. Arriving early she discovers an agitated man waiting at the door. He insists he must see the PI immediately. In the midst of his anxious demands, he clutches his chest and collapse. Shocked, she runs for help. Upon returning, the man has disappeared. The police are skeptical dismissive of her story. To prove she’s not a wacky woman, she attempts to find the missing man using only the cryptic note and he left in his place and his last words as her clues.
Meanwhile, the private investigator is onto something and tells her to retrieve a disc in his file cabinet which must be delivered to the police immediately.
As the story unfolds, everything hinges on finding the man with the sand dollar face.
