When a famous ballet academy is looking for ballerinas to star in their annual holiday production of The Nutcracker, Scarlett thinks she will be a shoe-in for the lead role of Clara. But it’s actually her little sister Gracie, with her big smile and bubbly energy, that catches the director’s eye. The dancers learn that teamwork and friendship can get you through anything, along with a little holiday magic!
