After having lived with their aunt for two years, fifteen-year-old Joey and his younger brother move back in with their mother to their great delight. At first everything goes well: the house is tidy, the fridge is filled, Daphne has a job and Joey finds his place in a dance group. It promises to be a beautiful summer. But the family joy soon comes under pressure when Daphne falls back into her old patterns. Joey does everything to keep child services out, but how long can he keep up this destructive dance with his mother, at the expense of his own happiness? I Don’t Wanna Dance is a true story, told and acted by the boy who experienced it himself.
