A world-famous Danish ballerina, Darling, and her husband, Frans return to Copenhagen for the first time in years. Together, they are going to mount a performance of the classic ballet “Giselle” at the Royal Danish Ballet with Frans as choreographer and Darling in the title role. On one of the first days of practice, a catastrophe occurs; Darling collapses in pain as her hip is worn out and her career suddenly comes to an end. Her whole world is in ruins. Darling makes an attempt to stay on top of everything by helping Frans train her substitute, Polly. But as Polly begins unfolding as Giselle, Darling’s world starts shattering.
