Rachel Young is a gymnast and a perfectionist. Unfortunately, her routines don't always measure up to her high-flying standards. Rachel soon comes face to face with real perfection when an old Sports Illustrated magazine transports her and her cousin, Nate, to the year 1976. There, the cousins get a chance to witness the gutsy Nadia Comaneci go for gold at the Montreal Olympics. Rachel soon learns that sometimes pluck is as important as perfection.
