Dancer and refugee Berty was obliged to leave his country because of political unrest. During his flight he arrives in a neighboring country where he meets Clemence, a young female dancer. He sees her as perfect dancer and also as ideal companion for life. Only their origins separate them because Berty will be rejected by the family of his sweetheart. But let’s not forget they have in common something unshakeable: The Art of Dance.
