Dancer #5 in room wide-1

A Dancer makes it into a renowned dance company only to have her chance suddenly taken away while a drummer, who’s been living on the streets, struggles to keep his music alive. Music and motion and the weight of their desires and dreams become exerted by forces unbeknownst and around them that unravel in a New York moment.
