Dance for me

D.: Katrine Philp, P.: Lise Saxtrup, Klassefilm, Copenhagen

If everything is at stake, is failure then an option?

In Denmark the dance halls are bursting with dancers of high international standards. It is all about getting the right partner, when you want to go to the top. But in a small country like Denmark, that is not always as easy as it sounds. Russian Egor (15) is sent to Denmark to dance with Mie (14) and become the best dancer in the world. In a journey marked by loneliness, deceit, ambition and an enormous pressure, Egor develops into a young man, determined to conquer the world.
