In this film by renowned French choreographer Angelin Preljocaj and Valerie Muller,  Polina (played by professional dancer Anastasia Shevtsova from Saint Petersburg's Mariinsky Theatre) is a dancer rigorously trained from an early age by a perfectionist instructor. Just before joining the prestigious Bolshoi Ballet, Polina discovers contemporary dance, a revelation that throws her into profound contemplation about her life. She moves to France to work with famed choreographer Liria Elsaj (Oscar winner Juliette Binoche), only to discover her dream may be more difficult to achieve than she imagined. (France, 2016, 112m)
