For reasons that Pierre Dulaine cannot quite explain, he decides that the best way to lead kids away from a life of violence and poverty is to teach them self respect and discipline through the art of dance. He makes a deal with the school director who allows him to try this technique on the students in detention, although the director doubts that Dulaine will make much progress. However, he soon proves everyone wrong as this group of kids begin to reform.
