Determined 15-year-old Lara is a young woman who is fiercely committed to becoming a professional ballerina. She throws herself into this quest at a new school, but finds the usual frustrations and challenges of adolescence are heightened as her body does not bend to easily to the strict ballet discipline because she was born a boy. Though supported by her family, Lara’s adolescent frustrations and impatience are heightened as she prepares for gender reassignment surgery, pushing her body to its limits.
