Official trailer


Doll Factory follows twelve-year-old Aliza Lambton (Tayluer Amos), a ballet dancer who is trained by her father Viktor. With Aliza training for the lead for the Doll Factory theatre auditions, Viktor has extremely high expectations of Aliza- expectations that Aliza's mother Rita doesn't agree with. With Rita warning Viktor for his applied pressure, Rita fails as she tries to talk Aliza out of over working herself at home and Rita is left to sit and watch Aliza train vigorously. With Aliza determined to perform the lead and the ending solo, Aliza is stuck between achieving a performance of a lifetime and knowing when her body has sacrificed enough.[1]
