Plot Summary

In 1887, after the death of her father, 25-year-old Marie-Louise leaves her life in the American West to join her mother in New York and pursue her dream of becoming an actress. On stage one night, she avoids falling by spinning the fabric of her long dress in a graceful gesture, and the Serpentine Dance is born. The dazzled audience calls out for more. Marie-Louise becomes Loïe Fuller and leaves New York, where imitators try to steal her radical innovations, for Paris.
