College sophomore Riley Adams dreams of being a world class elite dancer, believing her success can be a platform to share her Christian faith. Being raised in a single parent home, she's replaced the absence of her mother with the illusion of control, by learning to drive toward success by giving 150% all the time..

This was a very enjoyable and inspirational movie especially considering that it is low budget and very limited distribution. It deserves more.
