Following a strict routine, which involved several hours of daily workouts and gymnastic instruction, two young girls practice through exhaustion for the 2003 Mass Games, the world's largest choreographed performance. This spectacle, which takes place twice a day for 20 days, is a mass celebration of nationalism, athleticism and ideological unity.
