“A sweet and incredibly moving tale filled with moments of truth, poignancy and hope.” – IndieWire
A story to make your heart sing. The renowned dancer and teacher Pierre Dulaine, returns to his native Jaffa for the first time since he left with his Palestinian-French mother and his Irish father, as a child.
He is determined to teach the ‘two step’ to 11 year-old Palestinian and Israeli children in his own bid to overcome political and cultural differences. Not a simple task and he encounters a whole lot of resistance and prejudice along the way whilst setting a significant challenge to the children and their families.
This tender and elegant film proposes a glimmer of hope in the darkness of the Middle East conflict.
