The Forbidden Dance Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

When the Brazilian rainforest home of young Princess Nisa ([[Performer~P213302~Laura Herring~craigherring]]) is threatened by greedy American businesses, she travels to Los Angeles with Joa the shaman ([[Performer~P29604~Sid Haig~sidhaig]]). There Joa is thrown in jail, and Nisa must find a way to stop the rainforest destruction herself. When a young man who loves to dance crosses her path, and together they enter a televised lambada contest, Nisa might have found the answer to her prayers. ~ Iotis Erlewine, Rovi
