Synopsis:  BROKEN is an extraordinarily intimate portrait of Simone Orlando, Ballet BC's lead dancer for twelve years who suffered an injury that was so severe, she could hardly walk, let alone dance.  Hiding her affliction with painkillers, she struggled on, but an MRI revealed hip surgery was required.  This film is a unique study of the devotion that artists, performers and even athletes bring to their vocation, and what happens when fate intervenes to threaten their life’s work – and their identity.

BROKEN will be preceded by the short films, PARENT, TEACHER and COME BACK
