IN 2005, AMERICAN DANCER BOBBI JENE SMITH FOLLOWED VENERATED choreographer Ohad Naharin to Tel Aviv and became a star of his world-famous Batsheva Dance Company. A decade later, she faces a personal and professional crossroads: leaving behind her passionate new love, she heads home in order to branch out on her own solo career with a deeply personal, provocative choreography bound to get viewers talking! With remarkable intimacy and emotional depth, director Elvira Lind charts the journey of a woman finding her place in the world, and the sacrifices she has to make to realize her ambitions. Her incredible choreography pulls no punches just to break down doors – Lind is there with her camera, capturing it all with naked honesty…

“Remarkable … a treatise on art, ambition, long-distance relationships and the struggles to find one’s own voice, the film unfolds with uncommon grace.”
