Rigorously trained in Russian ballet school from a young age, Polina is an impressive classical dancer. Despite being offered a spot at the prestigious Bolshoi Ballet, she becomes mesmerised by the thrumming passion of more contemporary styles and heads to France, following her artistic instincts.
Filled with spellbinding dance sequences performed by lead actress Anastasia Shevtsova (a classically trained dancer herself, who trained with Mariinsky Ballet), Polina is a captivating French drama.
