Yet another gymnastics fiction, this time by Nicole Angeleen.
The story is darker.
It was inspired by the terrible, terrible tragedy of 11yr-old Romanian gymnast Adriana Giurca. Her coach, Florin Gheorghe, killed the girl in a rage during Beam training. He was convicted of manslaughter, sent to prison.
(Romanian) gymnast Trixie Dalca’s world is destroyed the day her sister Ileana falls during training, slips into a coma, and dies.
To cope with the loss, Trixie turns to her best friend, American gymnast Shaye Sylvester. Together with Shaye and amateur documentary filmmaker Abby Vicari, the three unlikely investigators question whether Ileana’s death was merely a tragic accident or murder.
