Tonight, Eye’s youth community MovieZone presents this screening of I Don't Wanna Dance. Having lived for two years with their aunt, fifteen-year-old Joey (Yfendo van Praag) and his younger brother are delighted to be returned to their mother (Romana Vrede). At first all is well: the house is clean, the fridge full, Daphne has work and Joey settles in at a dance group. It promises to be a great summer.
