Russia in the 1990s. Polina, a promising classical dancer, has been propelled forward since childhood by the rigour and high standards of her teacher Bojinski. While preparing to join the prestigious Bolshoi ballet, she attends a performance of contemporary dance, which leaves a deep impression – an artistic shock that strikes at everything she believed in.
