Write a short summary of what happens in the film

P. I. Tchaikovski’s ballet masterpiece The Swan Lake is more than 130 years old. But since that time the environment has changed. In a partnership with Ballet of Slovak National Theatre we created the contemporary adaptation of The Swan Lake as a reflection of eco-disasters hapening in the world’s lakes and seas. The first soloist Romina Kolodziej played her role of White Swan in a lake full of toxic water. TV commercial Oil Lake was aired like a warning just before EKOTOPFILM festival started. It caught the attention of many people not only in Slovakia but in Czech Republic and Poland, too.
