The film follows them to India, Romania, South Korea, and Iraq. They have one week to teach the tools of choreography and collaboration to kids who may be enemies, suspicious and fearful, or who may have been abused. The students respond in extraordinary ways. As they prepare to perform in public, both students and teachers experience surprising transformations. [Dir. Rob Fruchtman, 2018, USA, 84 minutes.
