This piece is about a teenage boy dancing to maintain his dignity.
One day after being assaulted, the boy stands silently on top of the school rooftop and slowly drops his head...


Standing against bullying requires great courage for the one being bullied.
The person can feel as if they are locked in an endless hell where no one can be trusted, and become overwhelmed by despair. Some may come to a point where they even lose trust in themselves and feel like they’d rather die than remain in such living hell.
Our interest lies here: then how do people behave in such hopeless situations?
Maybe it is that people maintain their dignity by immersing into something else; to dance, in our main character’s case.
Such actions may not have any impact on the reality he lives in. However, that moment becomes his spark of hope, which gives him strength to hang in there. We have made this film to embrace such human strength to define their own worth in the darkest times.

Finally, we would like to express our deepest gratitude to everyone who was involved in this project.
