This short film is a love letter to Lisa Cano’s long affair with her artform, reflecting on all sides of her career path up to now. How attached can one be identified to their profession? Especially when your instrument is your own body? The end of a career can be a painful yet beautiful transformational moment in a dancer’s life. The passion, the art, and how it has shaped her goes on within her now, outside of the stage’s spotlight.
