  • Role / Project description: STORYLINE: The storyline revolves around our lead character, Alex, a talented ballroom dancer from Ukraine, who forms an unexpected connection with Rachel, a blind girl. Rachel becomes a guiding force for Alex, aiding him in rediscovering his love for dancing and unlocking emotions suppressed by the scars of war. Navigating their individual challenges and facing the corrosive impact of fame and materialism, the duo uncovers the profound potential of genuine passion and authentic human connection. Their journey culminates in a captivating dance performance that goes beyond conventional expectations, leaving a lasting impact on the hearts of those who witness it. RACHEL (17) is a resilient young woman who has faced significant challenges in her life. Diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa at a young age, she gradually lost her vision due to the condition. Despite the obstacles she has faced, Rachel embodies a rebellious and independent spirit that refuses to be defined by her disability. Rachel possesses a strong, outspoken nature that contrasts with her visual impairment. Her trust issues have made it difficult for her to let others get close to her, but underneath the tough exterior lies a deep well of empathy and compassion. Recognizing Alex's emotional struggles, Rachel forms a unique bond with him, making a pact to exchange dance moves for words that convey the emotions evoked by the movements. This exchange becomes a gateway for them to understand and connect with one another on a profound level. Through her friendship with Alex, Rachel embarks on a transformative journey of self-discovery and healing. As she encourages Alex to embrace his emotions, she also learns to trust and open up about her own past. Rachel harbors deep resentment towards her father, who abandoned her and her mother in their time of need. Financial difficulties, coupled with the progression of her condition, left her feeling like a burden. At her lowest point, she attempted suicide, but the presence of her mother at her bedside became a beacon of hope.
