Pirouette tells a story of a woman in shadow who tries to find her true reflection in a mysterious hall of mirrors. As she dances, within the maze of mirrors, she catches glimpses of her full colored portrait in the mirrors, but still sees her real self as a silhouette. As the film reaches its end, she realizes it is a slow journey to find one’s true self, and she is content with the beginnings of color, becoming visible on her one dancing foot.
