Synopsis

When a young Siphe November leaves his small township in South Africa to
follow his dreams at Canada’s National Ballet School, he begins a
remarkable journey that reveals deeply personal pulses of family, prejudice,
expectation, loss, and resilience that beat beneath the surface of a beautiful
and demanding art form. As he soars on stages around the world, he must
navigate evolving relationships with the important people in his life: his
mother, with whom he feels a profound duty to help live a better life; with his
first ballet teacher, who is thrilled for Siphe but wishes he would give back
to his community and with his Canadian family, who strives to help him feel.
