Synopsis

This documentary follows a year in the life Isabela and Irlan two aspiring ballet dancers who engage daily in a clash between two worlds: rich and poor, black and white. Ballet is an art form steeped in the history of the wealthy white elite, and many feel that the likes of Irlan Santos da Silva and Isabela Coracy, two black kids from poor backgrounds, don't belong. Despite the constant prejudice and doubt, both are determined to follow their ambitions. For them, dance is a way out, an escape and on stage an ecstasy, that is rarely found in their tough day to day lives. The question is can they make it?
