1940: A Jewish girl's dream of becoming a ballerina is destroyed by the Nazi invasion of Paris. She vows that if she has daughters—she later has two—they will become dancers. Nearly 80 years later: Fernande Horenstein and her daughters confront the wounding impact of that pledge as they dance together for the very first time—towards reconciliation, and towards healing. PETIT RAT is an intimate family portrait of a dream deferred—a dream that haunts, inspires, and tangles across two generations.
