New York City, 1984. An amazing time for culture with the explosion of street art, hip hop, and breakdancing.  Films like "Style Wars", "Breakin'", and "Wild Style" brought it life for so many people all over the world.  Now take all that culture and excitement, and put it through the Hollywood homogenization machine, and you get a movie worthy of HMN.
