In 1961, Rudolf Nureyev travels to Paris with members of the Kirov Ballet. It is the first time since the Cold War that the company has performed in the west. Rudolf defies the edicts of his KGB handlers to savour the seductive delights of the capital in the company of French dancer Pierre Lacotte and his friend Clara Saint. She is a close acquaintance of the French minister of cultural affairs, who could oil bureaucratic cogs and facilitate a claim for political asylum.
