SECUNDARIA quietly follows one high school class on its journey through Cuba’s world-famous National Ballet School. Our teenage dancers love to dance but many of them must dance as their sole way out of poverty.
This story appears at first to be a traditional observational portrait. But in their third year of high school the main character, Mayara, takes charge of her destiny in an unprecedented way. Suddenly this simple portrait turns into the stuff of full drama.
Mayara blind-sides everyone: teachers, friends, family and, ultimately, the filmmaker herself.
