Dancing is Byron Carelse’s life. It’s his energy, his passion, his happy place … his spark.

When the rhythm takes hold of his body, he forgets about all the troubles waiting for him at home.

His best friend Tasha says he shouldn’t allow other people to steal his spark. But she doesn’t have a clue about the things going on in

Byron’s home. And perhaps it’s better that way. What will she think of him?

One day, somebody spots Byron’s talent. Along with a group of other township kids, he gets the opportunity to take part in a show at a big arts festival.

But what are you supposed to do when life tries to steal your dream from you?
