Synopsis:  This documentary follows Irlan and Isabela, two teenagers from the violent favelas of Rio de Janeiro, as they pursue their dreams of becoming professional ballet dancers. This inspiring story takes us from Rio – where their communities must raise the funds to support their ambitions – to exhilarating ballet competitions in New York and Switzerland. It’s a film about their determination to dance, and the price one must pay for talent, ambition and success.
