Having the time of your life? Well, not quite yet in Mina’s case: a nerdy teenager at the start of a new school year, Mina is keen to fit in, and even keener to impress E.D. Win, a young hip-hop dancer whose number of Instagram followers far exceeds his ability to empathise. Mina decides to take part in a dance competition, a journey she starts with the support of her grandmother, a fountain of no-nonsense wisdom whose candid advice is always an invitation to laugh. From an awkward initial audition to a show-stopping number, Mina learns how to overcome self-doubt and harmful body-image issues.
