A funny and touching comedy/drama. Rochelle is a middle-aged Jewish woman in New York City in the middle of a life crisis. Lost and alone, her life is suddenly changed when she is convinced to take a Flamenco class with other middle-aged women. The Flamenco class and its unforgettable circle of women – all shapes, sizes and colors – lead Rochelle on a journey of sisterhood, faith and discovery of her own deep inner voice.
