Synopsis

After a decade of stardom in Israel, the American dancer, Bobbi Jene takes intensity to a new level: She decides to leave her great mentor/choreographer Ohad Nahardi and the love of her life behind to return to US. Determined to establish herself, she creates her own violently personal and boundary-breaking performances. A woman´s fight for independence and the dilemma of its consequences.

„Smith — and Lind — speak to a bigger truth: as women, we are often told to be content with our position in life. (...) It takes a brave woman — a brave artist — to buck society’s conventions, and her own personal homeostasis, to get to that next level.“
