The 15-year-old Lara dreams of becoming a ballerina, she is training hard to get into a top dance academy and will push her body to its limits in order for her dream to succeed. Her adolescent frustrations and impatience are heightened as she realizes her body does not bend so easily to the strict discipline – she was born a boy and has not completed her transition yet. Ballet training is already so harsh on a teenage body; you add to this the hormone treatments and the strength necessary to the surgery – Lara is undergoing through a very wrenching reality.
