Plot Synopsis

Inspiring true story of the international gymnastics phenom who overcame overwhelming odds to become the first African American to be named Individual All-Around Champion in gymnastics at the Olympic Games. A prodigy from a very young age, she entered the competitive world of gymnastics at age eight, winning numerous state championship in the junior division. While her star was fast rising in the arena, Gabby and her family faced economic challenges at home. She eventually makes the difficult decision to leave her mother Natalie, three siblings and grandmother in Virginia Beach and move to Des Moines, Iowa, to train with renowned coach Liang Chow to pursue her dream of Olympic glory. Buoyed by her early success, dedication and unyielding love from her family, she makes it onto the 2012 U.S. Women's Gymnastics team, setting the stage for triumph shortly thereafter at the London Olympic Games. Her sacrifice and perseverance are triumphantly rewarded with Team Competition and Individual All-Around gold medals, placing Gabby and her teammates, known as "The Fierce Five," among the world's all-time greats in gymnastics.
