Plot: Battle of the Year is the Olympics of break dancing, a tournament held every year that attracts the best teams from around the world. But, the U.S. hasn’t won in fifteen years. A former b-boy, L.A. hip-hop icon Dante, is determined to change that. He enlists his hard-luck friend, Blake, a former championship basketball coach, to rally his team. With the competition just three weeks away, they’ll need a small miracle to reclaim the Battle of the Year for their country.
