Basic Synopsis

Buddy, volunteering at a hospital, encounters a star high-school basketball player, Jake McAlister, who is there for a broken leg -- or so he thinks; Annie runs for class president against her nemesis, Emmy Sheldon.

When the results of tests show that Jake has a more serious medical problem that would mean losing his leg, he runs away. His dreams of becoming a world class basketball player have been shattered. Buddy figures out where to find him and brings him back to the hospital.
