Summary Five former breakdancers reflect on their youthful rites of passage through the vibrant U.K. hip hop scene of the early 1980s, and how it allowed them to escape the confines of life in inner city housing estates.. As the wild energy of the scene burned out, their adolescent dreams were met with the realities of adulthood. However, the scene had a lasting legacy in their lives and a sudden tragic event gives them an unexpected chance to recapture their past. Once a B Boy, always a B Boy.... Winner, Best Documentary - Hip Hop Film Festival NYC
