Becoming BURLESQUE

the feature film: a dance drama with heart and humour

 

Fatima is a Toronto-born modern muslim girl raised in a family of mixed-cultures and mixed messages about what her role in the world is.  She gets sucked into the empowering world of a sexy Burlesque cabaret, and unleashes her brave and confident Burlesque identity, “Babylon”.  Then she must reconcile her old self with her new.
