To celebrate the tenth anniversary of ‘The Shearer Company’, an elite ballet company, a documentary crew are following three hopeful auditionees as they fight for a coveted place. Nadine, Geoffrey and Anita all face their own barriers to success that bring them into conflict with each other as well as beginning to recognise the classism, racism and homophobia they need to overcome. A fight over dance style, missing shoes and a ripped leotard are all part of a day in the life of a ballet dancer.
