FIND ME IN PARIS follows the story of Lena Grisky, a time-travelling ballet dancer from 1905 Russia trapped in modern day Paris, and the many dilemmas she faces finding her place between two worlds. Filled with world class ballet, modern dance, music, drama and comedy – all filmed on location in iconic Paris and the National Garnier Opera House, with a production budget unparalleled in the market – FIND ME IN PARIS has already taken the tween genre by storm with worldwide sales and critical acclaim.
