Plot synopsis
It takes place in the ‘80s and focuses on a 15-year-old student of the Moscow State Academy of Choreography who dreams of becoming a Bolshoi star. To reach his dream, the boy must work hard and overcome all sorts of hardships. “The film’s happy ending will energize viewers with the sort of positive emotions we don’t have enough of in current cinema”, Mokritskaya hopes.
