What began in late 70s Jamaica as a subgenre of reggae has developed into a worldwide phenomenon.
Dancehall has devotees all over the globe and is often noted for its hypersexualised dancing. Inevitably it attracts controversy, but director Cori McKenna shows dancehall in a new light, following a handful of dancers from various countries as they attempt to overcome numerous challenges to make it to Montego Bay to compete in the International Dancehall Queen Competition. Each of them have their own stories to tell, but are all united by a love of dancehall.
