Synopsis >

Steve Tevere wants a perfect 10. He’s an elite gymnast who dominates a field where a 9.5 can be an also-ran. It’s the little things that make the difference in Steve’s sport. It’s the big things that may hold him back forever. A troubled home life could destroy Steve’s athletic career in this stirring salute to gymnastics, dazzlingly directed by Albert Magnoli (Purple Rain) to ensure that in the vibrant competition scenes American Anthem really sings. Four-time Olympic medalist Mitch Gaylord plays Steve. Janet Jones brings her sharp dance abilities to the role of a floor-exercise superstar. And some 100 top-level gymnasts take to the rings, bars and other apparatus like the proven athletes they are. Much can be written about a champion’s prowess. Seeing these remarkable athletes in action says it so much better.
