This examination of Anna Pavlova's life shows her ascent from a relatively weak student at a Leningrad ballet academy to prima ballerina and the head of her own troupe. The film also shows her different relationships: her work with choreographer Mikhail Fokine at Diaghalev's company, and her rapport with manager and purported husband, Viktor D'Andre. In her travels, from Russia to London and Paris, her immense talent is revealed.
