When you're on holiday, you can be who you want to be. While skiing without her parents, the initially dreamy and shy Nicky breaks out of her shell: following the example of her popular girlfriends Max and Sam, she throws herself into the fierce competition for popular snowboard instructor Ryan. This jeopardises her friendship with Eef, who at 80 kilos has been her friend through thick and thin. She also puts at risk the love of a boy she really cares for: Ryan's younger brother Erik. At the Austrian New Year Ball, Nicky in her sumptuous Sissi dress is the princess she always wanted to be. But then she realises she has sacrificed herself to get here.
