Bela Karolyi's story is about facing and overcoming tremendous adversity. It's about fighting for what's right, and pounding your fist and raising your voice against injustice. Karolyi fought against the constraints of Communism, and the calculated malice of Rumania's secret police. Forced to defect from his native country, he left behind his six-year-old daughter whom he knew he might never see again. Once in America, Karolyi stuggled to master a new language and a new culture, all the while working to create a life for himself and his family. As a U.S. gymnastics coach, Karolyi proved that American gymnasts could be internationally competitive - an accomplishment that American coaches had yet to achieve
