For Patrick, a tortilla chip started his moment of self-discovery. With exuberant dancing and magical passion he shares his inspiration and invites everyone to participate. Even his mother.

With the score by award-winning composer Ralf Hildenbeutel, this film (winner of the „Dioraphte Cinedans Jury Award“ - the highest for dance film worldwide) explores the concept of spontaneous authenticity and the synopsis of body and soul... through tortilla chips and dance.
