This is a story about never giving up on your dreams, no matter what life throws at you. Chloe Bayliss was born to perform and t...hanks to a lot of hard work and determination, she's on her way to being a ballerina. At sixteen, she gets accepted into an international dance school and everything she dreamed of is about to come true. But then overnight a mystery illness takes Chloe from starring in Swan Lake to clinging to life in a hospital bed. Never in her wildest dreams could she have imagined the hurdles she would face but also how she would eventually triumph. Against all odds, she finds a whole new way to flourish, and despite the challenges she faces, Chloe never stops dreaming big. En Pointe is the real-life story of how an aspiring ballerina became an inspiring young actor after overcoming a life-threatening illness. Miracles really can happen, even if they're not the ones you asked for.
