In Orthodox Jewish life, much is forbidden. Especially any activities that bring you into contact with outsiders and allow you to step outside your box of restriction. 12-year old Ditty has never questioned the path that was chosen for her. Knowing her life was a series of duties to be performed never bothered her. Until one day, finding a hidden television set, she is transfixed by ballet. Achingly beautiful, she begins to long for a life that is forbidden to her. She signs up for lessons and is surprisingly talented. But what will happen when her Ultra-Orthodox family finds out that she is embracing an absolutely forbidden activity?
