Denmark, Sweden, 90 min
European Premiere

After a successful dancing decade, Bobbi Jene Smith decides to abandon her starring role with the celebrated based in Tel Aviv Batsheva Dance Company to go back to the United States and focus on her solo career. Resolute to make a name for herself in an extremely competitive milieu, she leaves Ohad Naharin, her awe-inspiring mentor and extremely famous artistic director behind. Bobbi Jene leaves also her lover behind, a professional dancer like her. Following her final months in Israel and her heart-breaking farewell, Elvira Lind conjures a complicit, poignant and edgy portrait. Moreover the film takes into account the creative process Bobbi Jene puts in place to compose her particularly intimate, innovative and audacious performances. A passionate and sensitive film that examines the necessary struggle and the inevitable consequences of artistic ambition, without hiding away the pain that comes from the quest for inner sincerity.
