The Olympics, 1994. Tonya Harding has hardly had the chance to dream past her father’s truck. Nancy Kerrigan has it all–supportive family, affluent background, beauty and effortless grace. Enter Tonya’s no-account boyfriend Jeff Gillooly, who has a plan to “help” Tonya win. What will happen when each skater has only three and a half minutes to be perfect?
