Battle of the Year is the Olympics of break dancing—an annual competition held every year that attracts all the best teams around the world. It's been 15 years since the American team won and Los Angeles Hip Hop mogul and former B-Boy Dante (Laz Alonso) wants to put the country that started the sport back on top.

He enlists his hard-luck friend and former championship basketball coach Blake (Josh Holloway) to coach the team. Believing the right coach can make any team champions, they assemble a Dream Team including all the best b-boys across the country. With only three months until Battle of the Year, Blake has to use every tactic he knows to get 12 talented individuals to come together if they're going to bring the trophy back to America.

Inspired by the actual World championship held yearly in France.
