Fall To Rise follows Lauren Drake (Katherine Crockett), a famous principal dancer who is let go of her company after an injury. Feeling domesticity was forced upon her after the birth of her first child, Lauren realizes she must do whatever it takes to reclaim her identity as the company's star. She attends the gala of the Hudson Dance Company, and runs into a troubled former company member, Sheila Jules (Daphne Rubin-Vega), who left in a cloud of scandal many years before. The two women casually propose to meet again, but soon after, Lauren realizes that Sheila can help her by providing a place to train, and care for her child on her journey to reconnect. Meanwhile, Sheila has unresolved issues with Des (Desmond Richardson) the artistic director of HDC, and sees an opportunity to confront him and her past through Lauren. Together these two opposites go on an emotional journey to discover the true meaning of their lives. Fall To Rise features an ensemble of Martha Graham Company dancers as the fictional HDC Company as well as supporting performances by Tamara Tunie as Annika, the business savvy executive director of HDC who supports the decision to bring Lauren back; and Kohl Sudduth as Ryan, Lauren's cause-minded lawyer husband who wants Lauren to embrace motherhood and start a new phase of her life.
