Synopsis: Da-Fi (pronounced “defy”)[noun]
●1. Short for Dance Fighting
●2. Hand-to-hand combat using dance moves
When MIKE discovers his father needs money for heart surgery, he and his B-Boy friends solicit the help of JIMMY, a professional gambler, and enter the world of “Da-Fi,” an underground fight-club where B-Boys and B-Girls physically battle for money and reputation.
Rules are simple: fight to the beat of the music and the last team standing at the end of three song changes wins. If you can’t take the heat, you better tap-out before you get knocked-out!
As the fights get more dangerous, Mike must learn to work with his team and hold everyone together, or he will lose his father forever.
