Give it up for Martha and Niki! The two win one street dance battle after the other and even end up the first female team to win the world championship. Once on top, however, they run out of steam and the big questions afterwards about who you are and where you want to go raise their heads. Martha in particular is overcome by a feeling that she’s in the wrong place. The film tells of the balance between having one’s head in the clouds and keeping one’s feet on the ground and about how hard it is to really get there.
