Jane Hawkins, a former gymnast struggling with loveless marriage, gives all she has into her job, message therapist. One of her encounter, puts her on the path of Nicole who submit to her the idea of doing an aerial act for Las Vegas. She accepts to at least try to practice with dancer named Serena and see where it leads.
This independent movie is co-produced by co-starr Addie Yungmee, Korean American and former L.A. Lakers cheerleader. It was interesting. Certain shots were well thought of. One I liked was when Serena is finally coming out to her parents and ring at their door. It’s very simple but effective. I have a little thing for Jane’s friend character. She was funny. Also the music is nicely used here.
