Amca | The Geezer

Amca (The Geezer) tells the story of a man who has dedicated his life to his only passion: dancing. He lost his wife, kids and his money to follow his dreams but still has the ambition to live, the passion and his joy for life. Delivery person by day, dancer by night; he is definitely one of the ‘others’.
