Alicia dreams of becoming a ballet dancer. In the cozy windmill where she lives with her grandmother, she impatiently waits for the moment to go for the long-awaited audition. But out there the world is not as idyllic as she thinks... The film exquisitely combines noir and fantastic, reality and fantasy, delivering the message that we can be consoled by art, irrespectively of cruel reality.
