After being cast in the lead role of a professional ballet, Ragan is pressured by the ballet’s director to lighten her skin with make-up. She reluctantly goes along with the request, but with each performance, she feels more degraded. When a young adoring fan tells her she wants to be just like her, the dancer cannot continue to perform feeling such shame… she makes a decision to be authentic.
