Marilyn Hassett as "Jill Kinmont"
One year before the 1956 Olympics, Jill Kinmont (Marilyn Hassett), an 18-year-old skiing champion, suffers a horrific fall during competition. Kinmont is fortunate to survive the crash, but she is left paralyzed. With her life now completely altered, Kinmont undergoes an exhausting fight to regain some of what she has lost. Friends and family stand by her side to offer their support through her ordeal, but the dedication of fiancé and fellow skier Dick Buek (Beau Bridges) truly makes an impact.
