Kristin Nunes combines ballet with Cirque du Soleil-like acrobatics to bring the awe-inspiring art of aerial ballet to the small town of Collingwood in Canada. Director Tom Strnad captures her aerial silks troupe’s motivations, dreams, their backgrounds, practice routines, injury-concerns, and the most pressing issue for Kristin: the threat of losing members to greener pastures. Months into filming the two-year project, some younger members opt to move cities for various reasons. Will this cause the troupe to lose its sync before an upcoming important performance?
