It’s 1972, and a small-town girl (Vickie) is accepted into the prestigious National Ballet School and selected to play “Clara” in the Company’s holiday production of The Nutcracker. Unfortunately that’s when Vickie finds out about the mysterious “Curse of Clara”, which threatens to derail everything. Thankfully, she’s got a good friend, the 1972 Summit Series and an imaginary mentor (in the form of Phil Esposito) to keep her “on pointe.” Starring Saara Chaudry, Sara Botsford, Sheila McCarthy, Karen Kain, Bob Cole, and Phil Esposito.
Winner of the 2017 Canadian Screen Award for Best Animated Program.
