What happens when doing what you want to do means giving up who you really are? We travel to Venice, Italy with reporters Kristen Clark and David Conrad, where they meet gondolier Alex Hai. On the winding canals in the hidden parts of Venice, we learn about the nearly 1000 –year old tradition of the Venetian Gondolier, and how the global media created a 20-year battle between that tradition and a supposed feminist icon.

First, the rise and fall of a pilot whose aeronautic feats changed aviation forever. Then, we meet a figure skater who pulled a thrilling move at the Olympics that no one else (as far as we know) has ever done in all of human history.
