Exploring and commenting on political and social influences, the film addresses topics such as appropriation, racism, socialism and sexism.

“(Wong's) documentary offers an enriching corrective to the official story of jazz dance, taking it beyond its already fascinating and complex showbiz luster to profoundly political terrain.” -- Hollywood Reporter
