Four-year-old Elizabeth was born into a family of ballet dancers and has spent her life in theatres. She knows every ballet troupe member by name and their ballets by heart. This film is about young Elizabeth’s journey through a world of theatre where illusion flirts with life and fairy tales become reality.

 

4-aastane Elizabeth on sündinud balletiartistidest vanemate perre ja enamiku oma senisest elust on ta veetnud koos vanematega teatris. Ta tunneb iga Estonia balletitrupi liiget nimepidi ja teab peast kõiki teatris etenduvaid balletietendusi, sest on näinud neid lugematu arv kordi. Elizabeth armastab, õieti lausa jumaldab balletti, aga kas see oleks nõnda ka siis, kui tal oleks selle kõrval muid valikuid? See film räägib väikese Elizabethi rännakust läbi muinasjutulise teatrimaailma, kus päriselu kohtub illusoorsega ja muinasjutust saab tõelisus.
