One Million Steps, a tap dancing adventure


One day, a tap dancer literally falls from the sky into Istanbul during the tense summer of 2013. She communicates with the people through her light-hearted dance and the universal language of music and rhythm. Suddenly the beat of the city changes. People bang on pots and pans, pour onto the streets and occupy Gezi Park, to protect it from being destroyed to make way for the construction of another shopping mall. When the police strike hard against the occupation, she joins the protesters. Her dance on the barricades of the occupied park becomes a political and human statement of solidarity.
