17 year-old Haley Graham (Missy Peregrym), though gifted beyond belief, has a rebellious streak that runs from her home all the way to Houston, Texas where the legendary Vickerman Gymnastics Academy, VGA, is located.

After running in with the law one time too many, she gets an unusual sentence; attend the Vickerman Gymnastics Academy, run by legendary coach Burt Vickerman (Jeff Bridges). Her teammates don’t make it any easier for her, as she walked out on them during the finals of the World Championship, costing them the gold, but she’d suspected that it wouldn’t be a walk in the park.

She confides to coach Vickerman why she walked out on the World Championships that day, to become the most hated figure in the world of gymnastics. And in a later competition- actually the Nationals- when a teammate, Mina (Maddy Curley), executes a near-impossible maneuver perfectly yet receives a low score (9.500 out of 10), Haley is furious at the biased judging as when questioned the judges account the deduction to Mina’s bra strap showing. This makes Haley show her bra strap, and forfeit her turn in disgust, inspiring the other gymnasts to do likewise. In her own way starting a small revolution…
