Summary
A sweeping saga about love, truth, grief and passion -- and what it takes to fulfil a dream. Paris, 1917. Ballerina Viktoriya Budian narrowly escapes Russia with her life. She arrives in Paris determined to start afresh with the famed Ballets Russes but her newfound success is threatened when her past returns to haunt her. Forced to choose between love and fame, Viktoriya's life spirals out of control and the decision she makes seriously affects the lives of many for years to come. Paris, present day. Australian dancer Lily Johansson returns to Paris, the city that broke her heart and destroyed her ballet career, hoping to ease the guilt over her fiancé’s death and to make amends with her estranged sister, Natalie, a ballerina with the Boheme Ballet. Terrified of loving again, Lily nevertheless finds herself becoming entangled with talented composer Yves Rousseau. Meanwhile, vying for the role honouring Viktoriya Budian, Lily's sister Natalie develops an unhealthy obsession. As Natalie's behaviour becomes increasingly erratic, Lily fears for her sister's safety and sanity. When Natalie goes missing, Lil and Yves set out on a desperate quest across France to find her and, along the way, battle their own demons. Could the search for her sister lead Lily to realise that ballet -- like love and life -- should not be abandoned so easily?
