The second part of the documentary tells of the international triumph of hip-hop, which reaches Europe in the mid-1980s. Along with London, Paris becomes the European center of the Danses Urbaines. It is dancers from Haiti or Martinique who bring their dances to the metropolis of Paris in the 80s, where Jazz Rock, one of the first European forms of street dance, emerges. Together with dance pioneers like Gabin Nussier and Niels "Storm" Robitzky, viewers follow the emergence of a new European dance culture between Paris and Berlin.
