The historical drama offers an intimate look into the life of "Precious Blue Johnson," a young woman fighting against standards and stereotypes in her quest to become the first world-renowned black ballerina. Blue Butterfly: The Black Ballerina portrays the sting of betrayal, the struggle to forgive and the power of love. It's a poignant and entrancing love story inspired by the real-life achievements of trailblazing African-American ballerinas like the American Ballet Theatre's principal dancer Misty Copeland, as well as Lauren Anderson, Aesha Ash and Janet Collins.
