    The death of his mother draws a young Frenchman (Demy) back to his childhood home in Los Angeles as he prepares to wrap up his mother’s estate. Things become complicated when he discovers that she was very fond of a woman named Lola (Hayek), who appears in her will.

    "Based on Marie Do's autobiographical novel, ["Dancing Forever"] neatly balances the two dominant factors in its heroine's destiny: her mixed-race heritage and her passion for dance.
