Paris, 1884. A orphaned girl arrives in Paris from Brittany. Felicie Milliner is 11 and has no money but one big, passionate dream: to become a dancer. With nothing left to lose, Felicie takes a big risk: she 'borrows' a spoiled brats identity and enters the Opera Ballet School.
But how long can she be someone else? Mentored by the tough and mysterious cleaner, Odette , Felicie learns that talent is not enough - it takes hard work to be better than her ruthless, conniving fellow students. That and friendship.
Felicie's inventive, exhausting and charismatic best friend Victor also has a dream: becoming a famous inventor. Together, they both encourage each other to reach for the stars.
