She takes a bow after every competition with a smile on her face, yet beyond public view Rita tends to be serious. The pressure that the Russian gymnast is under is immense. Day after day she stoically endures her trainer’s harsh tone. The film spends a year with the 20-year-old as she heads towards the Olympics – and an important decision.
