When a new student announces that he’s starting a dance crew at school with the goal of winning THE hottest dance competition in Norway, the shy middle-schooler Mina won’t let a little thing like not being able to dance get in her way. But as Mina rehearses new moves the pressure of fitting in with her hip new “friends” takes its toll. Mina comes to realize she must decide what matters most in this (cringe inducing) loving look at that tender age where identity is formed and being yourself is the best move of all
