Cristiano is helping a hot Cuban champion boxer Angel train and get ready for his next fight, by being his sparring partner. A love affair with the champion leads to more family problems and a fight. They must stay away from each other permanently to prevent anyone from knowing what truly happened between them.
 
Cristiano’s twin brother Horatio was the cause of the fight in the first place. Cristiano was trying to keep his brother from being hurt by their stepfather. Horatio after being gone for years came back to invite their mother to his wedding and was also looking for Cristiano.
 
Horatio takes Cristiano to his first hockey game in which he also gets to meet Alex Hunter. This is Alex’s debut game after returning from a car accident that injured him very badly. What Cristiano doesn’t know is that Horatio is blackmailing Alex because of the car accident and the true meaning behind it. During the game against a rival team, Alex’s arch nemesis, Derik, the two rivals get into a fight on television in which Alex doesn’t fair very well.
 
Horatio introduces Cristiano to Alex after the game and the two feel an odd attraction to each other. Cristiano points out to Alex that he telegraphed his punches in the fight on TV, and Horatio explains that his brother is a fighter. Alex invites Cristiano to a party, which upsets Horatio. He tells Alex to stay away from his brother or else. Alex tries to tell Horatio he wasn’t flirting and that he was just being nice - but Horatio isn’t having any of it.
 

Will Alex and Cristiano get to explore their feelings for one another? Will Cristiano find out about how much of a twisted person his brother actually is? What does his brother know that Horatio doesn’t?
