After two decades leading Madrid’s Compañía Nacional de Danza and transforming it into one of the most successful dance companies in the world, Spanish dance icon Nacho Duato is fired. Devastated, his all-consuming need to create takes him to St. Petersburg as he accepts the herculean challenge of modernizing a traditionalist Russian ballet troupe, even as it plunges him into cultural and social isolation.
