When Ruslana wins the Eurovision Song Contest for Ukraine in 2004, this sets off an unbelievable chain of events on the other side of the world. The lives of a shy, closeted Australian gay boy and a spirited, Ukrainian-Australian girl are forever fused as they share a moment of freedom in their conservative, rural small town. Using native speakers from Sydney’s Ukrainian community, who make their acting debut, Wild Dances is a joyful love song to diversity, rebellion and the power of dancing to your own beat.
