Sporting drama. Haley Graham (Missy Peregrym) is a former gymnast-turned-juvenile delinquent who, after one too many run-ins with the law, is forced to enrol at an elite gymnastics academy, the VGA in Houston, Texas, run by the legendary Olympic gymnast Burt Vickerman (Jeff Bridges). But the rebellious Haley is not welcomed into the academy by the other teenage gymnasts who despise her for walking out on her Junior Olympic team years earlier during a competition that cost them the gold medal. Haley is not a docile person herself, and makes every effort to provoke conflicts with the other girls. Vickerman takes it upon himself to coach Haley in his own way to make her regain her self respect for the VGA's coming spot on the Gymnastic Nationals.
