Ballet dancer Ruby and hip-hop violinist Johnny cross each other's lives by accident which leads to dramatic series of events.
23 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

Full of drama, tension, romance and talent, this film has given me shivers from the very beginning. I have never fell more in love with the characters then in this movie. The actors did not have much experience which is what I have concluded my research to. But during their acts in the film, they have not even given me the hint that they weren't. The hip-hop violin theme that is represented is very original and gives a complete different image of classical arts. As the two themes combine (classical and hip-hop), the story fills itself up with tension and talent. I do hope for those actors, musicians and actors greatness in their futures as they deserve it.
