Starring Dormeshia Sumbry-Edwards, an internationally renowned tap dancer who was the first female performer in the Tony Award Winning Bring In Da'Noise, Bring In Da'Funk, this documentary tells the story of Dee Miller, a former tap-dancing prodigy who can barely find the energy to braid a few heads at her mother's beauty salon until a handsome dance instructor and her mother's gambling addiction jolt Dee out of her lethargy. There's plenty of tappin' and neighborhood ambience in this Chicago-made drama directed by Stacie E. Hawkins.
