Summary A scripted adaptation of a 1958 'ballet in sneakers' by Jerome Robbins, a companion piece to his legendary West Side Story, that tells an abstract tale of disaffected urban youth. Shot entirely on location in the abandoned spaces of today's New York City on anamorphic 35mm, the film returns the original choreography to the streets that inspired it. Along with the dance film is a documentary where dance luminaries speak to the extraordinary history of the piece.
