The moving story of crossing the borders of one’s aspirations in order to fulfill one’s dreams. The central figure in our film is a young, outstanding and talented dancer who lives, since childhood, in the hall of residence of the Ballet School. From the moment she becomes the best graduate of the year her international career in dancing opens up ahead of her. The modest and exceptionally hard-working Weronika aims continuously for perfection. Her free time from classes in the theatre is spent working unceasingly on her body. Her private life, pain, loneliness and exhaustion remain somewhere in the background, brushed aside, until she suffers from a serious contusion just 2 days before her performance at the Berlin Opera that would have been so vital to her career. Pictures for the film were shot over the course of 6 years. Most of the action takes place in the Warsaw Ballet School, Warsaw National Opera, The Ballet School and Small Theatre of St. Petersburg, The Carmen de Robles Academy of Dance in Las Palmas and two theatres of Berlin Opera.
