Filmmakers Deidre Schoo and Michael Beach Nichols turn their cameras on a group of Brooklyn dancers and street performers whose talent may provide them with the means of transcending their meager beginnings in this inspirational, visually-striking documentary. Flex is a form of competitive dance that involves contortion, agility, and simulated violence. It's a particularly difficult art form to master, and even for the few who manage to do so, there's no guarantee it will lead to greater things. Schoo and Nichols introduce us to a handful of talented Flex dancers who are determined to evolve their art, and make a name for themselves while doing so.
