The Curse of Clara

Join local filmmaker Vickie Fagan for a screening of The Curse of Clara. When small-town girl, Vickie is accepted into the prestigious National Ballet School and selected to play "Clara" in the Company's holiday production of The Nutcracker, things look like they couldn't get any better. And they can't, because that's when Vickie finds out about the mysterious Curse of Clara. Thankfully, she's got a good friend, the 1972 Summit Series and an imaginary mentor (in the form of Phil Esposito) to keep her "on pointe."
