Through flashbacks to her journey from the childhood and difficult training in Russia to her emergence as the prima ballerina of Boston Ballet, the film captures the vitality and beauty of her dance. It is a story of hard work and determination, of devotion to the arts, and of an extraordinary dancer’s transition from the stage, to her new life as mentor for aspiring dancers who follow in her footsteps.
