Introduction
This film is set in an orphanage for teenagers with psychological problems. They are fond of singing and dancing. They sing for themselves, but with true passion, love, joie de vivre, and the pain of solitude. [Dance with Hope] presents the pain of orphans through the personal lens of the director. Mixing fantasy with pain and hope, [Dance of Hope] rejects the banalities of conventional expression to awaken in us a new consciousness.
