Documentary on Alicia Alonso, considered by many critics to be the prima ballerina among all the great contemporary ballerinas. Alicia discusses her history in ballet, we glimpse her early life and see her dancing in "Giselle", "The Black Swan", the "Grand Pas de Quatre", and "Carmen". We experience her triumph over blindness, the acclaim she has received from audiences worldwide and, above all, her continuing artistry and exhilarating verve.
"It’s not easy to find a foster family for you," an orphanage supervisor explains to nine-year-old Alicia. "After all, you are a very special girl." Alicia is crying. "I’m not special. I’m just a girl." This disturbing scene sets the tone for this film about Alicia, who was taken away from her teenage mother by the Child Welfare Bureau when she was 12 months old. She’s been living in an orphanage since the age of five, and they have never managed to find a foster family for her. In Alicia, we watch as she becomes a teenager, still craving safety and love. Over the course of three years, filmmaker Maasja Ooms follows her daily life up close. Alicia's yearning and powerlessness are palpable in these observations, which painfully reveal the effects of having no prospects.
