A classical dance prodigy in India, Veda’s heart and soul are in her graceful movements. When an accident on the way home from winning a big competition leaves her with one leg amputated below the knee, her dreams are also shattered. Fitted with a state of the art prosthesis, she must start over as a beginner. Her spirit and courage get her into a school with a revered teacher, Dr. Dhanam, who tells her that dancing is not about competition but “something larger and deeper that self.” With the help of the handsome and talented Govinda, Veda begins to approach dance as a spiritual pursuit.
This is the inspiring story of a young girl struggling to regain joy in her art. Told in verse which captures the mystery and beauty of India, it is a moving tribute to the power of art, faith and hope.
