Details of: I Don't Wanna Dance
|English Storyline||Length in min||Country||Awards|
An aspiring teenage dancer finds himself torn between his increasingly destructive mother and his own happiness. When Joey’s mother gets custody of her son, Joey is faced with a choice: return to his mother or go his own way. Thirteen-year-old Joey lives with his aunt, because his mother could no longer take care of him. When his mother gets custody of Joey and his brother, Joey quickly has to decide whether he wants to go and live with her. Should he choose for his well-being, or stake everything to build a new life with her? I Don’t Wanna Dance is fiction rooted in reality, because director Flynn von Kleist followed actor Yfendo van Praag for three years and based leading character Joey on him and his life.
