Synopsis
In his very own radical manner, the Belgian choreographer combines dance and music with interviews and archive images of current political events. The film begins in the rehearsal rooms of his dance company "les ballets C de la B". The group is developing a new piece. During the improvisations, they begin to tear their clothes off. Their fears about the future, shaped by wars, violence and identity crises, are discharged in this physical borderline experience.

With: Bérengère Bodin, Samir M'Kirech, TK Russell, Tinneke Beeckman, Philipp Blom, Teodor Currentzis, Berlinde De Bruyckere, Koert Debeuf,
