Three eight-year-old best friends do everything together, and always wear an identical article of clothing. Excited about taking an after-school ballet class, Vanessa and Zoe convince a reluctant Winnie to participate. After several lessons, the dance teacher points out to the other students how inept Winnie is and the child drops out of the group, which strains her relationship with her two pals. Finally, she misses them so much that she decides to try ballet again. With help from her sensitive, caring father, the girl becomes an expert at grand jets. She also comes to realize that people can have different interests and still be good friends.
