A film described as in production by Red Palette Productions.

http://www.redpalett...m_mcMoiuis.html

This film is about a tragic experience of the former principal ballerina of Boston Ballet, Marie Christine Mouis whose “technique, expression and womanly sensuality that set her apart from other dancers” and who is today confined to a wheelchair.

She fell ill with an unknown disease a few years ago that later she herself diagnosed as Lyme Disease. This documentary’s goal is to draw attention to a larger audience and especially, the medical profession so this disease can be discovered in an early stage and prevented.
