Renewal profiles Vertigo, a Jerusalem-based dance company that fuses dance routine with an ecological existence. The film follows the group as they build an eco-arts village to embrace a more sustainable lifestyle. The process of becoming green forces the dancers and their families to reconsider their art, their values, and their place in the Holy Land.
