An enthralling and complex tale about passion and the arts.

After graduating from an elite New York ballet school, 18-year-old Anna Forester moves across the country to begin her dance career in Los Angeles. Soon, she is drawn into the circle of her charismatic artistic director and the thrilling aura of company life. Her professional trajectory alienates Anna from her college-age peers, but the ballet community is an intoxicating place where she feels desperate to be accepted. Through Anna's eyes, the dance world comes alive in this unflinchingly honest portrait of a young woman in thrall to an uncompromising art form.

"Picks up where Girl in Motion left off, transitioning young Anna from student to professional, from girl to woman and everything that entails."
