Abstract:

Tuck Faraday lives on a poor farm in the South. He also lives with a stutter, which sets him apart from the other kids. Tuck's father does the best he can with his meager farm, a new wife, and Tuck's two lazy brothers. As he watches a nearby deserted factory being transformed into an ice skating rink, Tuck is surprised when Pete, the new rink's manager, offers him a chance to learn how to skate. Tuck works the farm during the day and secretly skates at night hoping to surprise everyone on opening night-- doing something that doesn't require him to speak.
