During that time, he sexually abused hundreds of female athletes.Based on years of research by producers Dr. Steven Ungerleider and David Ulich and featuring brave testimonials from the athletes at the center of the story, director Erin Lee Carr’s powerful documentary, At the Heart of Gold: Inside the USA Gymnastics Scandal, reveals a dangerous system that prioritized winning over everything else, including protecting young female athletes. Through interviews with dozens of survivors, as well as coaches, lawyers and journalists, the film exposes an environment in which young women spent their youth competing for victory on a world stage, juxtaposed against a culture where abuse was hidden, and lives were forever damaged.
