Polina is a young Russian dancer who is training under a formidable ballet teacher. She is admitted to the Bolshoi Ballet as a classical ballerina. However, after being moved to tears by the performance of a modern dance work. She drops out of the prestigious Moscow company, much to the despair of her debt-ridden, working-class parents.
Rigorously Polina is a promising classical ballet dancer. She is just to join the prestigious Bolshoi Ballet when she discovers contemporary dance. That a revelation throws everything into question on a profound level. She leaves her exacting preparation behind and moves to France to work with famous choreographer Liria Elsa.
