Overcoming impossible odds, a talented and impoverished break dancer from the streets of Mumbai chases his dreams of becoming a professional against the wishes of his struggling parents. A stern, 70-year-old Israeli ballet master gives him the determination to keep going and train in Israel. But when he is pitted against another boy who has captured the attention of the top school in the world, he must push himself to his physical limits for any chance of succeeding. An astonishing, classic underdog story of hope, heartache, and hard work.
