After a terrible beating from her husband, Elizabeth Finestan recalls the tragic events that led her to be bedridden in the hospital. Through her memories, we contemplate how her childhood was already scarred from the abuse both her and her mother faced from her father. However, we are also forced to think about how one could rebel against this type of situation. Elizabeth decides to run away from home and start a new life amongst truthful people who share the same passion: dance.  Nonetheless, new challenges are waiting around the corner. Dancer Life­ is a story about violence against gender, but also about friendships, pursuit of capturing one's dreams, and overcoming unimaginable situations.Tras una fuerte paliza que le propina su marido, Elizabeth Finestan rememora los trágicos acontecimientos que la han conducido a verse postrada en un hospital. A través de sus recuerdos contemplamos cómo su infancia estuvo ya marcada por los malos tratos que su padre les ocasionaba a ella y sobre todo a su madre. Sin embargo, seremos partícipes también de cómo supo rebelarse a esa situación, huir y comenzar una nueva vida al lado de personas que la querían de verdad y gracias también a su gran pasión: la danza. Aunque nuevas adversidades la estaban esperando a la vuelta de la esquina.  Bailarina de la vida es una historia sobre la violencia de género, pero también sobre la superación, la amistad, la persecución de los sueños y los avatares del destino.
