Synopsis

A young girl is sitting at a dining room table as papers and coloring utensils surround her. She is drawing a ballerina using light crayons. When her drawing is finished a real ballerina comes to life in the living room matching the drawing and dances gracefully. The older brother enters the room and looks at everything on the table and grabs the little girls ballerina drawing and colors over the ballerina’s clothes using a dark color crayon. A new ballerina suddenly appears with darker clothing. The two siblings begin to tug of war over the ballerina drawing and as the siblings fight the two ballerinas glare at each other and the space around them begins to darken and eventually turns black and white cartoon stars start to appear around them, the ballerinas commence dance fighting. The children fighting over the drawing are heard in the background as they fight. After fighting a while there is a large tearing sound heard and the ballerinas freeze and they along with the animated background disappear. The children are seen in the living room with the drawing torn in half, each holding a piece of the drawing. They appear stunned and look around the room.
