In ballet class, Emilia is having difficulty and making many mistakes. Madame sents her to the corner, and Emilia is left behind when class ends and the studio is locked. She practices diligently before falling asleep. The following morning, the students arrive and make fun of Emilia for being locked in. When the prima ballerina turns her ankle, Emilia steps forward to dance the pas seul. The other students make fun of her for volunteering, but she dances flawlessly, and the ballet concludes with the students and Madame congratulating her.
