Synopsis

Sergei Polunin, a young Ukrainian boy, joined the UK's prestigious Royal Ballet at the age of 13 and became a principal at 19. Polunin was the youngest-ever star of the Royal Ballet, but in January 2012 he took the dramatic decision to walk away from his classical ballet career.
An immersive personal portrait of the controversial ballet superstar directed by Oscar-nominated Steven Cantor, with stunning clips from visionary director and photographer David LaChapelle and Emmy-award winner Ross MacGibbon.
