Storyline

A moving, intimate portrait of an internationally renowned artist, Jock Soto of the New York City Ballet, who is Navajo Indian, Puerto Rican, and openly gay. On the verge of retirement, one of modern ballet's most gifted and celebrated dancers is forced to contemplate life after dance. Exploring identity, family, and transition, the film climaxes with his emotional departure from ballet at age 40 in 2005. As Soto reflects on his uncertain future, he also attempts to connect with his past, revisiting his Navajo roots and the cultural heritage to which he is at once detached and devoted. Soto's story defies stereotypes in the same way that his dancing transcends the expected. Written by Gwendolen Cates

A film of rare spiritual beauty...
6 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this beautiful film at its premier on Sanibel Island, Florida, and was moved beyond words by its sensitive story of such a beautiful, talented young man. Jock Soto's career ended in retirement at age 40 (I hope this is not a "spoiler.) after 25 years with the New York City Ballet. And what a tragedy for those of us who've not had the privilege to see him dance in person. His dancing, at least what little could be shown in the film, moved me to tears; his story can only inspire and give hope to young persons caught in the circumstances of whatever life in a minority existence gives them. I applaud Gwendolen Cates for her sharing Jock Soto with the world. I applaud Jock Soto for the spirit that moves him beyond the dance, and carries us all into the magical.
