Can dance change our world? New York City Ballet star Benjamin Millepied shows us in no uncertain terms that unless we occupy our own bodies with dignity it is impossible to show the world the respect it deserves and move in harmony with others.

Travelling to South Africa and Columbia, Benjamin takes us on a sociological voyage of discovery through his encounters with young dancers from the slums of Johannesburg and Cartagena.

In some places, teaching people to dance can help a body stripped of confidence to rid itself of the scars inflicted upon it by repression, oppression and crime.

These exciting encounters form the basis of a bold and daring film in which we journey to the heart of a universal culture: dance.

Itís also a very personal journey, during which Benjamin talks about his own career, the fruit of perseverance and suffering, as it is for these young dancers.

A lesson on life given a poetical twist.
