At the 1960 Olympic Games in Rome, Wilma Rudolph stunned the world by becoming the first woman to win 3 consecutive gold medals in Track & Field. But the most amazing part of this true story is that Wilma (Shirley Jo Finney) was afflicted by the crippling disease polio, a disease she conquered on her way to becoming one of America's greatest athletes. The story begins with Wilma's childhood in rural Tennessee, when her parents first learn she had contracted this horrendous disease. Her mother (Cicely Tyson) does everything in her power to bolster Wilma's self confidence and help her triumph over the handicap. Her ceaseless determination pays off as Wilma develops her strength, speed and agility. But her greatest triumph comes at the 1960 Olympics where her astounding physical abilities and determination make her the darling of the Games.
