Based on a true story about a group of Japanese Hula Dancers set in a coal mining town in 1965. It hits all the marks you expect from a setup like this but it's just fun to watch.
It is similar to both Swing Girls (2004) and Linda Linda Linda (2005) but has a lot more melodrama in it and if you recently watched The Sapphires (2012) you'll see a lot of parallels aswell. Shouldn't hinder you enjoyement though :).
