Elvira Lind

After 10 years as the star of the famed Israeli dance company Batsheva, the American dancer Bobbi Jene Smith makes the decision of a lifetime to return to the US. But tearing herself away from her deeply personal relationships proves harder than she ever expected, as she is forced to leave behind her mentor, choreographers and the love of her life, and return home to an uncertain future. Director Elvira Lind's raw and intimate approach bursts open the world of modern dance, and exposes the emotional quagmire where artistry, romance and determination intersect.
