Based on a screenplay by Bollaín's long-time partner Paul Laverty and on Carlos Acosta's autobiographical No Way Home, the film takes us to Cuba and the struggles of a poor family, revealing the harshness with which a man tries to get his son out of the streets and into the right path by exploiting his outstanding talent for dance. Bollaín brings us again a thoughtful and delicate work, this time coupled with the vibrancy of the dance scenes and the moving and heartfelt interventions of Acosta himself.
