Description: Set in Iran, this unbelievable true story follows the brave ambition of Afshin Ghaffarian. During the politically charged climate of the 2009 protests, where many cultural freedoms were threatened, Afshin and some friends risk their lives and form an underground dance company. Through banned online videos, they learn from timeless legends who cross all cultural divides, such as- Michael Jackson, Gene Kelly and Rudolf Nureyev. Their exploration of music, dance and a universal respect for artistic expression untouchable by political strife, enables them to discover a freedom from the harsh realities of their surroundings.
