Dancer in the Dark
Selma (Björk) is a Czech immigrant and a single mother working in a factory in rural America. Her salvation is her passion for music, specifically, the all-singing, all-dancing numbers found in classic Hollywood musicals, but Selma harbours a sad secret: she is losing her eyesight and her son Gene, stands to suffer the same fate if she can't put away enough money to secure him an operation.
When a desperate neighbour falsely accuses Selma of stealing his savings, the drama of her life escalates to a tragic finale.
Featuring the Oscar-nominated song I've Seen it All, this heartfelt tale celebrates the resilience of the human spirit.
