Misty Copeland's career as a classical ballet dancer shines a light on several challenges within the world of ballet: the absence of women of color at major companies despite so many gifted black women ready to make the leap; the emphasis on skinny bodies for ballerinas impacts the health of professional dancers and sends a negative message to young fans around the world. Misty, because of her race and her curves, is central to both issues in the classical dance world. A Ballerina's Tale is then an intimate look at this artist during a crucial period of her life.
