Synopsis:
Carlos Acosta changed dance forever when he became the first black principal dancer of The Royal Ballet. Born in Cuba, travelling to London and becoming one of the most celebrated performers of our times, this film captures both his incredible life story and footage of Acosta himself interpreting his history through dance. With beautiful recreations of Cuba under Castro, and with a script from Paul Laverty, the writer of 'I, Daniel Blake', we follow young Acosta as he bridles against a strict training regime to discover his own voice and unique talent, making sense of himself in the unfamiliar world of London. A stunning tribute to the power of dance.
