The problem for German high jumper Gretel Bergmann (played by award-winning Karoline Herfurth), a top contender for the gold medal at the 1936 Summer Olympic Games, was that she was Jewish. To prevent her from winning a medal, yet appease Americans threatening a boycott if Jewish athletes were barred from competing, the Nazis sabotaged her training by bringing an unknown rival high jumper with a big secret onto the team. The film, inspired by the real-life story, explores the tenuous and most unusual friendship that developed between these two outsiders who found themselves united by very difficult circumstances.
