It's New York, and Nina (Portman) is a ballerina who is obsessed with dancing, but not quite as much as her over-bearing mother, Erica (Hershey).

When the director of a Swan Lake production fires his lead ballerina (Ryder), Nina is favourite to take on the role - but a new dancer called Lily (Kunis) has just hit the scene. With Nina embodying the light side of the Swan Lake character, and Lily the dark, the pair begin an uneasy friendship, that will lead Nina down a very dangerous path.
