Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 01/2020

Katya is a young, outstanding and upcoming ballet dancer. In just a few weeks she is due to have a major audition for the New York Ballet Academy and Katya has good chances of getting a scholarship. But when she meets a group of street-dancers the girl dives into a completely new world. Streetdance is so free and explosive. Katya's heart is gripped by this new dancing and the introverted Marlon, a gifted B-boy who recognizes her potential.

With Marlon, the ballerina experiences a previously unknown feeling for life and lightheartedness, community and spontaneity. Katya knows: She cannot go back to ballet. Together with Marlon she wants to audition for the Sonic Tigers, an internationally known streetdance-crew. Will she make the leap?
