December 3rd screening with director Philippe McKie in attendance

Yume has only one dream – to break into the dance world in Japan. She leaves her small town, against her parents’ wishes, to move to Tokyo and make her mark in her discipline. She navigates between street dance competitions, hip-hop classes, life in her tiny flat, and the many encounters with colourful characters. All alone in this big city, she also has to take a job as a hostess to help her survive. Far from her initial ambitions, this job may help her to assert herself and gain self-confidence, unless it leads her into a toxic spiral instead. (Fantasia)
