Directors Max Giwa and Dania Pasquini bring jaw-dropping dance moves to the big screen in the British film StreetDance 2.

There're only two months until the Street Dance World Championships in Paris. It's dancer Ash's (Falk Hentschel) dream to win the contest. His biggest rival is Vince (Anwar Burton), leader of three-time world champions, known as Invincible.

Ash's manager Eddie (George Sampson) convinces him to take a European road trip to put together a dance crew to take down Invincible.

But even after visiting many cities including Berlin, London, Amsterdam and Rome, one crucial performer is still missing from Ash's line-up.

They know the key to victory is the element of surprise, to show the world a style that's as beautiful as it is powerful. What they have in mind is the fusion of Latin and street dance.

Eddie takes Ash to a salsa club in Paris to meet Eva (Sofia Boutella). Ash convinces Eva to join the crew - and along the way, she teaches him a thing or two about dance. But will they and their newly minted styles be enough for the final showdown?
