Natalie also happens to have a disability, and when several classmates make fun of her and tell her she can't be a dancer, she begins to think that maybe what they say is true! Fortunately, a new friend, Emma, steps up, hoping she can help Natalie rediscover her positive spirit and pursue her dream. Meanwhile, Emma's little brother faces his own battle as his potential is overlooked. Can these two kids trust in their imaginations and give themselves a chance to shine?
