By the walls of the Prince's Palace of Monaco, Grace Kelly meets with legendary ballerina Margot Fonteyn and Soviet ballet bad boy sensation Rudolf Nureyev. The individual life paths taken to reach this fairytale encounter include a commoner-to-royal transformation (Kelly), formative years in China where her father was interned by the Japanese during World War II (Fonteyn), and pursuit by the Soviet secret police for his defection on June 16, 1961, in Paris (Nureyev).
