The film focuses on one of the greatest ballet teachers of the 20th century, Ludmila Pavlovna Sakharova. Sakharova is the current artistic director of the Perm Ballet school. The Perm school is one of the top 3 ballet schools in Russia, with the others being the Vaganova Academy and Bolshoi school. Sakharova was the teacher that trained her most famous student and probably the most remarkable teenage student ever, Nadezhda Pavlova. At the same time that she was teaching Pavlova, her other student, Olga Chenchikova, was winning the silver medal against older professional dancers in the 1973 Moscow Ballet Competition when 16 year old Pavlova became the only ballerina to win the Grand Prize at a major competition of that level.
