Based on her memoir of the same name, the film tells the story of Mariemma, a dancer who shaped 20th Century dance in Spain. Mariemma’s paths through dance helped launching the careers of internationally renowned artists such as Antonio Canales, Enrique Morente, Elvira Andrés, Joaquín Cortés and Lola Greco amongst many others. All of her protégées appear in the film recounting their experiences alongside Mariemma and describe her invaluable contributions to dance, Spanish culture and history. A fascinating portrait of a seminal dance figure with a tale that needs to be told.
