The often too-intense world of competitive gymnastics is the focus of this made-for-television movie. Courtney Peldon stars as Katie Bryant, an aspiring young gymnast who is willing do whatever it takes to make it to the top of her sport -- including suffering verbal abuse from her demanding coach, competing while injured, and intense dieting. Swoosie Kurtz stars as her mother Allison, who at first agrees to the rigorous training, but later realizes the dangers of her daughter's environment. Mom Allison removes Katie from her strict coaching program and helps her find training with a more positive approach.
