The movie is about Frankie (Francheska), a 12 year old ballerina. Frankie has done ballet all her life, but walking through the park she sees a sign announcing baseball tryouts. Encouraged by her activist best friend and neighbor, Hazel, Frankie decides to go out for the team. She has to do this on the sly because her grandmother, whose thinking is in the victorian era, feels Frankie should live, breathe, and eat ballet. Frankie lives with her grandmother because she lost her parents when she was two. Frankie’s grandmother hasn’t finished grieving for her daughter, who also was a ballerina, and demands ballet from Frankie because it’s a way of closure for the severe emotional loss. Author: Katrina Anne Van Tylor
