Tiny Pretty Things: Gist of the Drama
This drama series is based on the book Tiny Pretty Things by Sona Charaipotra and Dhonielle Clayton from writer Michael MacLennan. It is all about the ballet world and also highlighting its glamour and darkness.
It shows the voyage of three girls at an exclusive Manhattan ballet academy who are ready to do anything to be on the top. You get to see different traits in each girl, whereas one is free-spirited, privileged, and perfectionist.
They all have their fair share of drama. There can be seen a beautiful example of diversity in characters and settings. There are altogether different situations when every dancer is both friend and foe.
What will ballerinas do to get to the top? Will they really be able to manipulate each other? The need to win is different for different people. Can they backstab to be the best of the best? What will be the sacrifices?

But of course, with all the drama and we are also exploring various issues from sexual orientation to ethnic identity to single-parent households in a glamorous, high-stakes setting.
