Fleeing to Tokyo to fulfil her dreams of becoming a dancer, Yume soon realises that success doesn't come quickly or easily. Alone in the big smoke, she navigates street dance competitions, hip-hop lessons, underground clubs, life in her tiny flat alongside the many colourful characters she meets along the way. To keep her head above water she picks up work as a hostess in the red light district, a job far removed from her initial ambition that may grow her self-confidence but also risks leading her down a toxic spiral.
Starring one of Japan's most celebrated dancers, Bambi Naka, in her first leading role, Dreams on Fire is an electrifying journey through dance and underground culture. Director Philippe McKie seamlessly guides us through Japan's most dazzling sights and sounds grounded by a truly brilliant human drama at its centre.
