Yuli

Synopsis: 
Cuba, early 80s. Yuli does not want to dance, he doesn’t want to wear tights and ballet slippers, he wants to be a footballer, like Pele. His father forces him to attend the national school of ballet and ensures that he finishes his education. Later on Yuli is sent off to a ballet boarding school. He learns to cope with his loneliness, and takes refuge in dancing, becoming the outstanding dancer of his generation. After winning the gold medal at the prestigious Prix de Lausanne, the English National Ballet offers him the role of principal dancer: the beginning of a unique career. Yuli will have to decide whether he follows the path his father imposed on him, or finds his own way through his love for dancing.
