Description

Bryce is a champion gymnast dedicated to his sport. His dream is to compete in the Olympics, and with the financial and emotional support of his family, he’s on track to do just that. However, his coach, a former Olympic athlete, is increasingly negligent and verbally abusive. It isn’t long before poor scores and injuries force Bryce and his family to make a decision: Bryce must recover and bring up his scores, or he’ll need to quit. There’s another gym in town, but the coach is a woman, and Bryce has doubts about her abilities. What should he do to enable him to improve enough to go to Nationals and then—hopefully—on to the Olympics? Bryce is barely a teenager, yet he must make a choice that will shape the rest of his life.
