Story

In early 90s Moscow, 8-year-old Polina, a gifted ballerina from a modest background, joins Professor Bojinsky’s prestigious dance school. Recognizing her immense potential, he pushes her relentlessly. By 18, she fulfills her dream of entering the Bolshoi. There, she meets Adrien, a charming French dancer, who introduces her to a new, life-changing form of dance. From Moscow to Aix-En-Provence and Antwerp, Polina’s journey unfolds, filled with success, love, and disillusionment.
