A light weight yarn with small doses of heart and soul.
12 February 2003 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Late 40's and the Comrades are looking out for each other by sending those with tuberculosis to a sanatorium, in hope of recovering. But the health system is as shonky as ever and the only life worth living for is created by the energetic young dance master, who shows the sickly patients the joys of living through dancing the pain away.
