The Slovak West Coast Crew surprisingly wins a dance battle against the mean Muertas – and thus an invitation to a casting show in Prague. Do the outsiders have a chance there? Music film with rapid dance moves that also addresses the young dancers’ difficult transition into adulthood.
Despite their young age, Buddy and his friends from the West Coast crew already have serious problems: Mary grew up without a family in an orphanage, Hugo is mute, Foxy is bullied as a lesbian, Brko is discriminated as a Roma. But when they dance, everyday life is far away. A victory in the Super Dance casting show could change their whole lives. But the jurors are cynical and hard, they are mainly interested in audience numbers. To stop them dropping out, they also start digging around in the young dancers’ private lives. Their friendship is consequently severely tested.
After looking at doping methods in the Communist sports system in her successful film FAIR PLAY (FFC 2015), director Andrea Sedláčková has focused once again on unfair competitions – this time in the tough business of casting shows. Her actors include professional hip-hop dance crews who deliver dynamic performances, including the impressive backdrop of the High Tatras. CF
