In the ghetto where Lil’Buck grew up, what goes around comes around. Now, bringing his experience in the ballet world with him, Lil’ Buck is heading back to South Memphis to teach dance to the youth, offering them the chance of a better future. Returning home to the town where he first learned to dance, Lil’ Buck will lead us through the streets as he recounts his personal story and the history of Jookin. Through his eyes, we discover an amazing community - violence and poverty are everywhere but dance is keeping them alive and proud.
