When you are young you have dreams, and sometimes to accomplish those dreams you have to push the envelope.
South Beach Miami youths want to be dancers, but first they want to win a you tube contest. Eddie (Misha Gabriel Hamilton) pulls a group of dancers together and forms “The Mob”. The group will stop traffic in the streets or perform at an Art Gallery and post it on the Internet to try and win the contest. His friend Sean (Ryan Guzman) is also a dancer for the group and works at the Anderson Hotel Chain along with Eddie.
Eddie gets fired by the owner Mr. Anderson (Peter Gallagher) for showing up late. Mr. Anderson buys up the entire block and wants to turn a run down section of South Beach into another up and coming neighborhood. This will put Sean and Eddie and many others out in the cold.
Anderson’s daughter Emily (Kathryn McCormick) wants to become a dancer. She has talent but lacks originality. She auditions to join an exclusive dance studio “The Windwood”. She is accepted but lacks a certain flash.
Emily is accepted into “The Mob” and when she finds out what daddy is up to, she asks Eddie and Sean to turn art into protest.
The movie is a cliché of the have and the have not’s. It is an attack of the idea of big business versus the common man. This movie is an awakening of the senses. The music is rad. The dancing is extreme and to the point.
Director Scott Speer brings all the action together to show that youth can have ideas and dreams, and that we must listen to them since they are a force to be reckoned with. Enjoy a movie of art, thought, and beauty, one that will make you wish you could live your dream.
