When American dancer Bobbi Jene turns 30, she decides that after 10 years in Tel Aviv it is last call for her to return to the US and establish herself as an independent artist. She buys a one way ticket and hands in her resignation, saying goodbye to a solid position in one of the world’s leading dance companies.
But at the 11th hour a much younger and very charming dancer from Jerusalem arrives at the company and Bobbi falls deeply in love. Suddenly, a distant dream from her Mid Western childhood of becoming a white bride and having children jeopardises her plans of creative independence. In desperation she decides that against all odds she may be able to have it all and holds on to both the man and the new career path.
The Film follows Bobbi’s journey as she returns to a country she left behind, reuniting with her Catholic parents and creates an intense solo piece that severely tests her own pain threshold and emotional endurance.
But as she begins to unlock an American audience and propels herself into the New York art scene she also faces the personal sacrifices she had made getting there.
