In this chapter, Maya Plisetskaya talks about Sleeping Beauty and Swan Lake, politics in Russia, the Great Terror under Joseph Stalin, her mother's incarceration in Butyrki Prison near Moscow, and her father's execution by firing squad on January 7, 1938. Maya wrote this memoir in Spain, where she was living at the time. Her mother was moved from the Gulag to a shabby Kazakh place called Chimkent. Meanwhile, Maya decided to go back to ballet.
