HEAVY METAL DANCERS is a documentary about Finnish pole sports – it is about accepting own imperfections and striving for perfection on stage. The dancers are Finnish but their stories universal. Their passion for an unusual sport let them come to terms with their bodies, lifes and their sometimes difficult past.
