Starting a new life in Australia should be full of freedom and happiness for 21-year-old Sudanese refugee, Emmanuel. However, the struggle to leave the past behind him after war proves to be more difficult than expected. With the uncertainty of whether or not his missing father will ever return, along with the pressure to keep his family afloat financially, Emmanuel must somehow find a way to stay strong in a house-hold where hope seems to be fading fast. A love of dance and the desire for connection might just be enough to help Emmanuel hold onto his dream: a future that is free from the traumas of the past.
