Maria Fux is an elderly Argentinian dancer. In her studio in the centre of Buenos Aires, she welcomes dancers from all walks of life, including women and men with physical and mental impairments, and arranges integrated dance groups. After having experimented and taught her method throughout her entire life – based on the perception of inner rhythms and the symbiosis with music – Maria Fux is now dealing with one last student, possibly the most difficult one: herself. We all have limits that we can acknowledge and finally overcome. At the age of 90, Maria fights her ultimate battle against the limits of her own body.
