Synopsis Although she is a good student, the rebellious attitude of Carmen in her high school does not please her parents, Mexican immigrants living in the US and striving to give her the traditional education they deem most appropriate. But the girl has a secret hobby: street dance, which she does in the undergrounds of Chicago, and which helps her overcome the complicated relationship she has with her parents and the rest of her family. During one of their arguments, Carmen temporarily moves to her best friend’s home where she discovers that her boyfriend abuses her. On the other hand, one of her teachers discovers her dancing talent while rehearsing alone in the park and encourages her to go and audition for a place at a dancing school in California. Carmen shall attempt to leave all her problems behind, to overcome her fears and lack of self-confidence, and to take advantage of the opportunity to make her life dream come true.
