Summary: Margaret Lambert was a superior German-Jewish athlete who excelled in the high jump, but on her road to the 1936 Olympics, she encountered a terrifying roadblock: the rise of the Nazi Party. This HBO Sports documentary explores the hopes and heartaches experienced by Lambert when her dream of competing for Germany in the Berlin games was clouded by the rise of Adolf Hitler's political movement--at a time when Jewish athletes were being expelled from German sports clubs.
