Follow filmmakers from the sweltering heat of Brazil to the rolling pastures of Switzerland as they train their lenses on the dancing fighters who have dedicated their lives to the development of Capoeria - a combative form of aggressive dance in which fancy footwork takes the place of full-contact force. Sandro, Pixote, and Zumbai are the three men that form the group Caoperia Gerais. As the popularity of Capoeria spreads to Switzerland, the three men open up their classrooms in Fribourg, Neuch√Ętel, and Vevey to show just how a little innovation can lead to a one of the biggest dance trends of the new millennium.
