South coast of England; during the 2021 covid lockdown, a dance school swaps stage for screen hoping to portray the growing struggles that our younger generation faces with their mental wellbeing. Louis, Hannah and Naomi reveal what life is like as a teen in today’s climate, as we observe their lives and experience. The young dancers tell their stories, breaking down barriers with their openness and honesty.
