Benson Lee directs this drama starring Josh Holloway and Chris Brown in which a down on his luck basketball coach attempts to rally a team of breakdancers to win a major competition. Though America initially set up the 'Battle of the Year' competition, where the best b-boying (or breakdancing) performers from a number of countries square off, a team from the US hasn't taken the trophy home for 15 years. This greatly concerns L.A. rap mogul Dante (Laz Alonso) who attempts to convince his friend Blake (Holloway), a top basketball coach who has fallen on hard times, to take charge of this year's team. Though Blake is initially sceptical, he quickly realises that his ability to build team spirit may be the missing ingredient. Can his team, which includes Rooster (Brown), prevail in this year's competition?
