With compelling characters and vibrant dance sequences, Benson Lee's documentary feature is set in the international world of B-boying—the urban dance more commonly known as "breakdancing." An American dancer in Vegas looks for his big break; a Korean son seeks his father's approval; a 12-year-old boy in France confronts his family's racism—all the b-boys' lives collide in Germany where their skills are put to the ultimate test: the "Battle of the Year" finals, with crews from 18 nations vying for the title of World Champion. The film features electrifying dance performances and astonishing displays of power and grace, showing how a street dance from New York has evolved into an inspiring art form for a new generation around the world.
