The enthusiastic young director Flori rehearses a fringe theatre production of Igor Stravinsky’s revolutionary ballet “The Rite of Spring”. She is dissatisfied with the performance of her much older soloist Helen, who seems unable to accept the role of the female sacrifice, who literally dances herself to death in an act of devotion. Flori therefore uses manipulative directing strategies to force Helen into her part as the victim.
