Benson Lee's Planet B-Boy is a fun doc set in the international world of b-boying -- the urban dance more commonly known as "breakdancing." Weaving against the backdrops of Las Vegas, Osaka, Seoul and Paris, it tells the intimate stories of dancers who struggle for their dreams.

An American dancer looks for his big break. A Korean son seeks his father's approval. A 12-year-old French boy confronts his family's racism. One guy figures he's spent three or four years solely spinning on his head. All the b-boys' lives collide in Germany -- at the Battle of the Year finals, with crews from 18 nations vying for the world title. With performances that electrify, stupefy and awe-inspire, this doc shows how a New York street dance from the '80s evolved into an art form for a new generation around the world.
