Wendy Whelan has been a principal dancer with the New York City Ballet (NYCB) since 1991. However, after decades at the height of her profession in New York, Whelan's childhood and roots in Louisville, Kentucky, still inspire her. This new documentary tells the story of this top American ballet star, including behind-the scenes footage of the NYCB, including classes, warm ups, rehearsals, and finally, a performance onstage at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. Along the way, we meet world-famous choreographer Christopher Wheeldon; Whelan's husband, photographer David Michalek; and NYCB soloist Craig Hall, one of her regular dance partners.
