Nadia Comaneci was best known for being the first person to ever score a perfect 10 in the olympics in gymnastics, achieving the feat as a young athlete performing on the uneven bars apparatus. She went down in history for her sports prowess and she was treated like a national hero in her home country of Romania. The gymnast seemingly had everything she could ever want in her small, eastern bloc communist country, but then she decided that she wanted more.

Comaneci would go on to daringly escape from the communist dictatorship of her youth to the freedom and prosperity of the West, yet the scandals surrounding her, her family, and one of her former coaches followed her across oceans. This is incredible, true story of Nadia Comaneci, the woman who was able to change the face of gymnastics, and tumble her way into the hearts of gymnasts and citizens all across America.
