An unexpected collaboration between veteran choreographer Tamar Rogoff and Gregg Mozgala, a young actor with cerebral palsy challenges the boundaries of art and medicine. As she trains him to become a dancer, they discover that her lack of formal medical training and his fears and physical impairments are not obstacles. The film charts their joyous if difficult journey toward an opening night performance, delivering small miracles along the way that speak to the human body’s astonishing possibility for transformation.
