Aya is eleven years old and has just arrived in Britain with her mum and baby brother, seeking asylum from war in Syria.  When Aya stumbles across a local ballet class, the formidable dance teacher spots her exceptional talent and believes that Aya has the potential to earn a prestigious ballet scholarship.  But at the same time, Aya and her family must fight to be allowed to remain the country, to make a home for themselves and to find Aya’s father – separated from the rest of the family during the journey from Syria.
