In the world of competitive stepping, they are the team to beat. Off stage, the Gentlemen of Vision are growing up in struggling working class suburbs. Ferguson is their backyard and their reality.
In many ways, they are like countless kids from tough homes and neighborhoods, but they have a bond, a brotherhood, and a leader whose dedication is rock solid but his love is tough. Gentlemen of Vision founder Marlon Wharton has built the team’s winning tradition by acting as both stepping coach and life coach. He demands from them time, discipline, good grades, and a clear plan for a future after graduation.
The film depicts the struggles and successes of team members during GOV’s 2015-16 season. For many, this is their senior year; as steppers their goal is to win the two major national competitions; as young men, their goal is to survive and move on to achieve their dreams.
