The video shows a group of teenage girls on a stage of a school auditorium. Despite of the visible discomfort they keep on moving side to side, as if in a dream, as if instructed, while cameras are flashing on their bodies, dressed in uniform clothes. A female voiceover in the background describes a nightlife scene, in which a young woman contemplates how the context of her upbringing could have shaped her sense of belonging. Magnetic Dance of a Hidden Potential touches on subjects of gender roles, national stereotypes, contemporary emigration and the idea of becoming.
