Plot Synopsis:

Rigorously trained from an early age by a perfectionist instructor, Polina (Anastasia Shevtsova, a professional dancer who has performed with Saint Petersburg s Mariinsky Theatre) is a promising classical ballet dancer. She is about to join the prestigious Bolshoi Ballet when she discovers contemporary dance, a profound revelation that throws everything into question. Diverting from her plan, she leaves all her exacting preparation behind and moves to France to work with famous choreographer Liria Elsaj (Academy Award®-winner Juliette Binoche who has danced with dancer/choreographer Akram Khan). But once there she is quickly forced to grapple with the realization that determination and hard work don t always lead to success.
