Fifteen-year-old Joyce Collins wants to win the attention of Andre Miller and to dance ballet as well as her mother did. But ballet is not her talent, and it is not until she meets a handsome Muslim drummer and becomes interested in African dance that she awakens to her heritage as well as her own worth.
