Set in Thirties London, Ballet Shoes tells a tale of orphans Pauline,
Petrova and Posy Fossil, who are adopted by an eccentric explorer, Gum,
and raised as sisters by his selfless niece. The story revolves around
each girl’s struggle to fulfill her dreams: Pauline longs to be an
actress, Petrova yearns to be an aviator, and Posy seems born to be a
ballerina. But when Gum disappears, the money runs out – and the girls
have a fight on their hands. They struggle to balance personal ambition
with the need to survive physically, emotionally, and financially.
