A portrait of a Russian artistic gymnast who we meet when, at the age of 20, she’s preparing for the most important event of her career – the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. Rita is exhausted by hours-long training sessions and participating in various championships, and her frustration is doubled by the fact that there’s real life happening behind the doors of the gym. The girl has to face her ambition and find herself in the complicated training system, represented by two different types of trainers. Will Rita have enough inner strength and determination to stand on the highest step of the podium in Brazil?
