When the Brazilian rainforest home of young Princess Nisa (Laura Herring) is threatened by greedy American businesses, she travels to Los Angeles with Joa the shaman (Sid Haig). There Joa is thrown in jail, and Nisa must find a way to stop the rainforest destruction herself. When a young man who loves to dance crosses her path, and together they enter a televised lambada contest, Nisa might have found the answer to her prayers.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"What's a nubile young monarch to do? Why, head to the States and school the nature-hating, money-grubbing Yanks with some hearty forbidden dancing, of course!"
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"A musical without the spark of classics like Flashdance or Fame."
‑ Luis Martinez, Cinenganos
"The movie feels like Dirty Dancing mixed with an 8-year-old's view of rain forest ecology."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
