When the young farmer Markus falls in love with the young beautiful student girl Romi, two completely different worlds clash together. Thanks to their common dance training they become aware of what they really want to achieve in their lives. Against all odds and misunderstandings of their family and friends, they succeed in realising their dream. With breath-taking dance moves in hip hop and with a sensational mix of diverse dancing styles, this film shows a story about life, about growing up, the first love, and about the magic, power and passion of dancing, all before the unique backdrop of the Austrian mountain landscape.
