Eight years after he famously defected from Russia, world-renowned dancer Nikolai Rodchenko finds himself back on Russian soil against his will when his plane is forced to make an emergency landing at a Soviet military base. The Soviets quickly learn his identity and decide to hold him as a criminal. But concern for the Soviet image worldwide has them wanting to convert Rodchenko, not punish him, so he is matched up with another dancer--an American defector--to encourage his loyalty. Mikhail Baryshnikov and Gregory Hines each bring their own brand of dance to the film, with Twyla Tharp's choreography. - dvd universe
