Each year, the Schuman Center for the Performing Arts draws young dancers whose only desire is to pursue their dreams of beauty and perfection. Instead, they're faced with a harsh and sometimes ugly world where their every flaw is critiqued, and where the competition drives people to extremes... in this case, murder. That's why it's no surprise when ALONA LANDAU, a ruthlessly cruel young dancer, winds up dead.

Alona spared no feelings in her quest to become the best, and there are few who truly mourn her. Her instructor, ETHAN JOHNS, actually encouraged vicious competition, pitting the girls against each other. He also enjoyed sleeping with his students and became violently jealous when he didn't get his way. Alona's biggest competitor, JESSALYN KERR, also raises suspicion. Jessalyn is an extremely talented dancer who always ends up in second place, no matter how hard she works. Another person of interest is PAULETTE BARTOL, a young dancer with an unhealthy attachment to Jessalyn. The question is, how far will these dancers go to achieve their dreams? At what point does passion become obsession?
