Maiko’s Dance is a film about a woman whose tough training and discipline has brought her to the top of her career as a prima ballerina at the Norwegian National Ballet. With her mother as a driving force behind her career, her parents sold their house and car to send 14 year old Maiko to the most prestigious dancing schools in Europe. She was only 19 when she was casted for the most demanding role in classical ballet, Odette in Swan Lake, a magical moment for Maiko and her mother who came to see her on stage for the first time. The only thing missing from her life is a child. We follow Maiko at a breaking point in her life, where she is forced to make decisions that might jeopardice everything she has worked for.
