Helena Weinrauch, who grew up in Drohobycz, Poland, lived through the worst atrocities the 20th century had to offer. Helena survived 3 concentration camps: Plaszow, presided over by the notorious Amon Goeth, Auschwitz, and Bergen Belsen. She endured the 500 mile death march from Auschwitz to Bergen Belsen, and miraculously, her life was saved at the last second twice as she stood before two firing squads.
Helena's survival has only given her strength, and a reason to find joy in her life. She finds joy and hope in Ballroom Dancing. This film is not a story of war or hate, but rather one of strength, hope, and joy.
A few years ago – as a mere girl of 88, Helena decided it was time to finally pursue a life-long dream: To become a ballroom dancer. The film tells that story of her miraculous survival – and also of her healing – her redemption.
