Joe Peterson, is a burned-out kids book writer who’s approaching his mid-life crisis. With his career at a standstill and his relationship in shambles, he leaves town with his best buddy to do the Polar Bear Plunge in the dead of winter in northern Wisconsin in an attempt to reignite his fire.
On his quest he meets: Axel, an inspirational mentor; The Sheriff, an obsessed law enforcement professional; and Sif, his muse and a hockey player. Good thing they’re all related!
Joe finds his lost passion, survives an assault by his obsessed ex-girlfriend, and tries to stay out of the way of the law. He pulls it together and finally gets the girl, and thank goodness, publishes again. But not before testing the icy waters of Lake Michigan on a snowy winter day.
