Go behind the scenes as a company of non-professional actors rehearse "Dancing to Beethoven," a play about blind characters negotiating their way through the emotional and physical maze of life without sight. Most of the performers have no problem imagining themselves in these roles - they are blind themselves. All but one of them lost their sight later in life. In this spirited documentary, we hear their own stories about losing their vision and learning to cope with the world of blindness.
