Alexis’ dream is to become the best Cuban dancer. But before he can dance at the National School of Ballet in Havana, life will bring him an unexpected change: his parents decide to leave Cuba.
The emotional story of a talented young dancer who suddenly leaves his safe house in Cuba and finds himself in the United States, in a world of intense competition, but also open opportunities. We notice a sensitive image of a beautiful and painful teenager, intertwined with the Cuban mood, against the background of two different approaches to life: a Cuban friendly society and an individual American. Can Alexis continue his dream in his new company?
