In Victorian-era England, a nobleman falls deeply in love with a Russian ballerina. On their wedding night, he gives her a unique pair of Pink Ballet Slippers as a wedding gift. During their reception at his estate, he walks in on his true love committing adultery with one of his staff members (stable boy, etc.). He dies of a broken heart on the spot, but with his last breath curses her to walk the earth until she finds true love. Many years later she does indeed find true love...but the same thing happens to her on her wedding night.
