Dancer and refugee Berty was obliged to leave his country because of political unrest. During his flight, he arrives in a neighboring country where he meets Clemence, a young female dancer. He sees her as the perfect dancer and also as an ideal companion for life. Only their origins separate them, because Berty will be rejected by the family of his sweetheart. But let's not forget they have something unshakeable in common: The Art of Dance.

Tänzer und Flüchtling Berty war gezwungen, sein Land wegen politischer Unruhen zu verlassen. Während seiner Flucht gelangt er in ein benachbartes Land, wo er Clemence, eine junge Tänzerin, kennen lernt. Er sieht in ihr die perfekte Tänzerin und auch eine ideale Partnerin fürs Leben. Nur ihre Herkunft trennt die beiden, weil Berty von der Familie seiner Liebsten zurückgewiesen wird. Aber es kann nicht übersehen werden, dass sie etwas unerschütterliches gemeinsam haben: Die Kunst des Tanzes.
