Synopsis

When the catharsis of love is a mimesis of dance and music, the result is a poiesis, in other words, a spatial and sentimental creation where a pair of ballet shoes is the nexus between two lovers that destiny united between games, smiles and complicit glances, which tune a magical warmth in the environment.
