A pair of acrobatic burlesque performers attempt to juggle art, love and financial stability in this perceptive portrait. Following the effervescent Trixie and the puckish Monkey from their base in Baltimore to hone their skills at a New England circus school, to burlesque competitions in Las Vegas and, finally, to a new home in New York City, Kirsten D’Andrea Hollander explores the sacrifices made for one’s passion, the meaning of success and the strength that comes from partnership. -Doc NYC
