The incredible destiny of Nadia Comaneci, the Romanian gymnast who lived under Ceausescu's dictatorship and who, at the age of 14, obtained the perfect score, the first 10 in the history of the Olympic Games, in Montreal in 1976. It was an incredible sporting career that she would go on to fight another battle, until she fled Romania in 1989: that of deciding her life and her destiny despite the overwhelming hold of a tyrannical dictator.
