A partnership between director Cédric Klapisch and London-based Israeli choreographer Hofesh Shechter who appears as himself – the film focusses on real dancers really dancing. There are no body doubles and no illusions. Élise (Marion Barbeau) is a talented ballet dancer whose life is turned upside down by an injury, and again when she catches her boyfriend cheating on her with her understudy.
