Will gangly, geeky Boris Fishkin realize his dream of dancing at the Russian Bolshoi Ballet?  He has a few obstacles in his way in this humorous movie, including a lack of talent and his Jewish mother needing a class in Parenting 101.  But after digesting Baryshnikov via a White Nights DVD, Fishkin’s life changes dramatically.  Not only does Fishkin resemble Mikhail, but he also starts getting notice for dancing like the maestro!
