In January 2003, 250 Berlin schoolchildren united with choreographer Royston Maldoom, the Berlin Philharmonic and Sir Simon Rattle – in his first season as Chief Conductor of the orchestra – to dance Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring, one of the 20th century’s greatest ballets.

Following three young dancers through twelve weeks of rehearsals, with stunning dance scenes and fantastic music from Rattle and the Berlin Philharmonic cleverly woven throughout, this documentary charts the highs and lows of an emotional journey, asking the question: ‘How can creativity change all of our lives?’.
