Ella Havelka is the first indigenous dancer ever to join the Australian Ballet and this moving documentary follows her journey from rural Australia to one of the most prestigious dance companies in the world.
The film gives us a rare glimpse into the high-impact world of professional ballet while also presenting an intimate portrait of a young girl who is discovering her indigenous identity. An inspirational story for audiences of all ages, including little prospective ballerinas.
