Boys Don’t Dance is a narrative film that both questions and celebrates the right of individuality in a conformist and homophobic society through the eyes of a queer boy named Ono.
Ono aspires to be a ballet dancer but it is quite impossible in his society. He is in love with one of his school’s athletes, Ryan, who is in love with him back but doesn’t want to be found out. One day, after getting beaten up by Ryan’s teammates, Ono falls into another world and meets a group of circus performers who show him that he can be whoever he wants to be.
