Yuli is the nickname given to Carlos Acosta by his father, Pedro, who considers him the son of Ogun, an African god and a fighter. As a child Yuli avoids discipline and education, learning from the streets of an impoverished and abandoned Havana. His father, however, has other ideas, and knowing that his son has a natural talent for dance, sends him to the National Ballet School of Cuba. Despite his repeated escapes and initial poor behaviour, the boy is inevitably drawn to the world of dance, and begins to shape his legendary career from a young age, becoming the first black dancer to be cast in some of the most prestigious ballet roles, originally written for white dancers, in companies such as the Houston Ballet or the Royal Ballet in London.

Diese Mischung aus Sozialdrama und Tanzfilm basiert auf der Autobiografie von Carlos Acosta. Drehbuchautor Paul Laverty, der viel mit Ken Loach gearbeitet hat, verbindet Acostas Lebensgeschichte mit der Geschichte des revolutionären Kuba. In der Rahmenhandlung sieht man ihn selbst, wie er ein Tanzstück über sein Leben probt. Intensiv, vielschichtig und radikal -- Billy Elliot ist erwachsen geworden.
